Why not just set needinfo on bug assignee when all linked patches
are merged? this would ensure that missing patches get uploaded
asap and once this is done and all patches are merged you can clear
needinfo and move the bug to modified manually?

You're optimistic that you'll get the info in time before a build.
If you want a certain bug to be included in a release then you have to make sure that bug 
is on MODIFIED before build time, waiting on human to do instead of bot has its cons:
 - the person can be on PTO / Leave and won't see the email - thus a bug will miss a release
 - people miss emails all the time, especially if you have multiple work with bugzilla, I remember more than once
bugs left with NEEDINFO for quite a long time.

In the end, I think we should still make an effort to find the right logic to do with bot, 
keeping this task manual will cause more bugs to be left on POST from my experience (we used to do it in the past)
