Re: why does debian packaging think ITP is still open?

If I look at my package thru debian packaging:
It thinks my ITP #635672 is still open.
However the changelog file contains a entry like this:
libswe (1.77.00.0001-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Initial release (Closes: #635672)
Why does packaging not see this? Have I made a mistake?
Not you, but your sponsor.
Quoting Developer's Reference §5.8.4: “Unless specified different by the
-v-switch to dpkg-buildpackage, only the bugs closed in the most recent
changelog entry are closed (basically, exactly the bugs mentioned in the
changelog-part in the .changes file are closed).”
