That's the user's choice/problem/issue.

Emails/names appear in changelogs everywhere I look, if someone
doesn't want his email/name to appear publicly, then use an
alternative email/name, that's a choice given to the user when he/she
creates an account in identity/upstream bugzilla / any public ML /
forum /whatever.
