It is, version 2.15-1.1, you just missed it.

We don't upload new upstream versions to stable to fix security holes.
Where we can we just backport the fix.  This is so as not to cause
knock-on problems introduced in new versions.

In the case of bluez-utils, this is exactly what was done -- see 

I would not have closed the bug if the fix hadn't gone in.
