A bug tracker is a tool for developers to keep track of known behaviour,
You must be talking about some particular bug trackers because many bug trackers are in fact for lots of other things.
Some bug trackers provide the important service of telling users what not to waste their time reporting because it's already been reported. Some provide the service of telling users what bugs they can eliminate by switching to another release or just waiting.
None of that is relevant here, of course, where the disappointment springs not from the way the bug tracker is used but from the statement of process made in response to the bug report: this isn't going to get fixed for you.
I just wanted to dispute an overgeneralization about bug trackers.
