It is a bit more complicated than that:

First of all, there is the RC-bug count of a package in sid. This is
just the count of all RC-bugs, excluding RC-bugs which are fixed or
sarge-ignore, and excluding RC-bugs with an distribution-tag (i.e.
potato, woody, ...), except if the bugs is also tagged sid.

The RC-bug count of a package in sarge is equalled to the status in sid
during every britney run where the (source) packages have the same

So, to answer your question: A RC-bug tagged sarge, sid adds 1 to the
sid-RC bug count. However, if there is at least one britney run where
the versions in sarge and sid are the same, the sarge RC count has also
that 1 added. So, if the versions are the same, it has no negative
impact. If they are not, it's a blocker.
