Please note that `remember' has been replaced by `org-capture', at least if we
speak of the same...

I think you mean "superseded", not "replaced": remember.el is still in Emacs bazaar. Yes, I'm aware of it, but presumably as long as remember.el is still included with Emacs it's acceptable to fix bugs in it? And since org-capture is not, as far as I know, based on remember, there is no reason to suspect that bugs in remember will be mirrored in org-capture?
