I suspect this may be caused by the sponsorship page, which
instructs the sponsor to rebuild the sponsored package using
"dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -m'Happy Sponsor <email@example.com>'".
Naturally, this will be interpreted as a NMU, hence the fixed tag.
The correct would be to replace -m'Happy Sponsor ..' with
-k0x<sponsor's PGP key ID>; then changelog-closed bugs would be
closed properly. I think I mailed Stéphane regarding this once,
but the page hasn't been updated yet.
