The bugtraq:* properties are something you apply to configure the feature,
TortoiseSVN uses these properties, it does not set them itself. It sounds
like when you set them, you checked the box to set them recursively, that
is the only reason you would have them on files.

Folder properties are versioned, so they are only applied from that
revision onward, or until they are removed,

As for this feature itself, it ONLY controls the UI and tells TortoiseSVN
to append a specific log message on commit. It would be up to the issue
tracking tool to provide the rest. For example, a post commit hook to set
the issue ID as a revision property and/or record some info in the issue
tracking system for it to use in its UI. The basic idea here is to:

a) provide a nice UI for the user to use the feature consistently (the
commit dialog UI)
b) provide some visibility into the issue tracking tool from the UI (the
hyperlinks to the issue from the Log dialogs)
c) provide a consistent log message on commit to make it easier to write
hooks that add extra features as described.
