That is unfortunately *FALSE*.  You forgot about how reflogs are
stored for these branches.

Again, you forgot about reflogs.

For this case I do not think it even is unfortunate.  Having two
"bugfix" and "bugfix/a" branches, if you are planning to use the
hierarchical names to group things together, does not make much
sense, and if you are not using these hierarchical names to group
things together you can always use "bugfix" vs "bugfix-a" instead.
