Interestingly, if/once the bug is set back to 'UNCONFIRMED', that flag
is cleared. It's not (as many of us probably assumed) a
write-once-never-change field. See an example in the activity here:

So while I question the logic of setting it at all when the status
changes to NEEDINFO, at least bugzilla is cleaning it back up if/when
we move status back to UNCONFIRMED.
