It happens when people write something like "why it is still not
implemented?" or "why nobody does that?". It is quite simple: developers
have their own priorities but if they they like the idea or their employer
likes the idea, they can pick it up and implement.

I do not have any statistics but from time to time I add feature ideas or
bug reports to the BT when I have no time to work on them. It often happens
that weeks, months or years later I see those entries and do work on them.

One of reasons for having the bug tracker is to keep ideas that otherwise
would be forgotten.

We also have Friday bug days when people can pick up entries and work on
them. If somebody finds something really cool, why not implement it during
the bug day? :)
