Marking a bug as a blocker doesn't mean that work will happen, it means that the release will be be held up by it. Unless the bug is a regression from the previous release, or something that's being actively worked on and is nearly ready, it's very unlikely to deserve to hold up a release.

Blockers are, as the name suggests, things that block a release being made. They're not a to-do list for things that are planned to happen before a release (that would be the 'target milestone', which should only be set by the person working on the bug).
