I think debbugs:NNN is a bit better than Bug#NNN. It's more specific.

Currently, if you put ' (Bug#1234)' in a commit message, Emacs VC (via .dir-locals.el's setting of log-edit-rewrite-fixes) alters this to 'Fixes: debbugs:1234'. Looking at recent commits, it appears that this is commonly done in practice, though I don't know what keystrokes trigger this.

How do you commit changes involving bug numbers? What Emacs commands do you use? (I use vc-dwim, but evidently I'm in the minority.) Perhaps the "obvious" information about what keystrokes to use should be put into CONTRIBUTE, and CONTRIBUTE should recommend "Fixes: debbugs:1234' instead of its current recommendation 'Fixes: bug#1234'.
