Apache2 mpm_event bug still present in Ubuntu repositories

A bug in the apache2 package where mpm_event does not always gracefully
kill child processes after a graceful reload of the service is not patched
in the Ubuntu repositories. This is a nasty bug because if for example a
SSL certificate is replaced inside a vhost configuration, then older child
processes will still serve the older certificate, resulting in certificate
errors. Please check out PR 63169
<https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=63169>. Apache fixed this
bug in 2.4.49
but the bugfix is still not included in the Ubuntu repository. Since this
bug is pretty frustrating, I was wondering if this particular bugfix can be
patched in Ubuntu's version of the apache2 package.

Kind regards,
