Note that uploads to experimental do not close bugs, but they do add the
tag 'fixed-in-experimental'.  Bugs addressed by NMU's to experimental keep
the normal behavior, that is, they add the tag 'fixed'.

to the section:
5.8.4 When bugs are closed by new uploads

Would probably clarify it.  I don't know whether or not you think that's
worth a bug report, though.
