When a bug is marked as fixed it doesn't show up in searches developers use so it's a matter of who reads the email and acts upon it. I don't see why maintainers would be any more likely to act than an arch team comprised of multiple people in the case of bigger arches. Let's not forget that users are really supposed to open new bugs instead of commenting on the resolved ones although I know there are users out there who rather comment on a two year old only distantly related bug than open a new one.
