/usr/share/doc/developers-reference/developers-reference.txt.gz:
4.6.4:
   When uploading to unstable a package which had bugs fixed in
   experimental, please consider using the option `-v' to
   `dpkg-buildpackage' to finally get them closed.

It does not actually say what you were asking, but this is the hint that
bugs are tagged rather than closed by uploads to experimental.  It would
be nice if it were a little more explicit, I agree.

HTH,
