Doesn't look like it currently. That would probably be easy to fix.
Right now it looks like it's only used Environment-based auth, so if
your email on your external auth account changes Bugzilla will
automatically fix its copy the next time you log in.
perldoc Bugzilla/Auth.pm shows this in the section about $login_data_hash:
Some string that uniquely identifies the user in an external
account source. If this "extern_id" already exists in the
with a different username, the username will be *changed* to
username specified in this $login_data.
That is, let's my extern_id is "mkanat". I already have an
in Bugzilla with the username of "mkanat at foo.com". But this time,
when I log in, I have an extern_id of "mkanat" and a
"mkanat at bar.org". So now, Bugzilla will automatically change my
username to "mkanat at bar.org" instead of "mkanat at foo.com".
