Then the counts are closer. If one looks at the current 1,021,440-line output of 'git log', 3515 lines match the regular expression 'bug#[0-9][0-9][0-9]' and 2906 lines match 'debbugs:[0-9][0-9][0-9]', ignoring case for both searches.

My impression is that most of the 'Fixes: debbugs:NNNNN' lines come from "bzr commit --fixes NNNNN", i.e., that they were not originally part of the commit message but were in Bzr metadata that was transferred into Git's commit messages because Git doesn't have metadata of this form.

I expect that most of the "by-hand" instances use the "Bug#NNNNN" form because it's easier to type, and now that we're doing this stuff more by hand the "Bug#NNNNN" form would become more popular even if CONTRIBUTE weren't recommending it.
