That version number is the version that the bug was filed against, not
the version it is fixed in.

Correct, the bug is not fixed in Safari 3.2.

The version number field of the bug report indicates the version
number that the originator observed the bug in. The SVN revision
number (eg, r32664) given in the comments indicates which revision of
the WebKit trunk contains the fix. There's no particularly easy way
to determine whether or not a bug was fixed in a given release of
Safari. If you're patient, you can look through the Subversion
repository and see which changes were made on the branches that a
given release was made from.
