Based on how stabilization ticket buckets are organized now, it is expected. Right now, "FreeIPA 4.2.1" milestone rather means "FreeIPA 4.2.1 or later 4.2.x release" as non-closed tickets are simply moved to "FreeIPA 4.2.2" at the release time and we continue working on the stabilization branch. This makes the job easier and less error-prone for people closing the tickets when patches are merged as the Milestone name always refer to the right FreeIPA version (it did not in the past). If this setup is confusing for people, other option would be to have something like "FreeIPA 4.2.x backlog" and move the ticket to the right version milestone ("FreeIPA 4.2.1") at the time the ticket is closed. But without proper tooling, I am afraid people may simply close the ticket within "FreeIPA 4.2.x backlog" and it would then not be clear what version it is fixed in.
