You can't really.

Bugzilla is a complete mix of real bugs, enhancement requests, vague reports
that may or may not arise from a bug, and complete nonsense that some
reporter insists on reopening and we can't be arsed to pay attention to.
That's the downside of an open bugzilla for such a widely-used project.
The only real indicator you have is where a PR is marked enhancement.

The PR numbers in SVN logs give you a record of both bugfixes and functional
enhancements that trace back to bugzilla.

Yes, a change may fix a PR without anyone knowing at the time.  Particularly
the more vague, unspecified PRs.
