Commits referencing (not closing; just referencing) issues by numbers

Issue #13651 open
created an issue

I know a commit with a message like close #123 or fix #123 would close the corresponding issue.

But sometimes I want to just mention the issue, not close it yet. I've tried commit messages like addresses #123 and my commit; #123 and it didn't work. The resulting commits do link to the issue, but there's no mention of them on the actual issue page.

Here's an example of what I'm talking about: ref.png

I tried searching and even found something relevant, but this still feels like a separate feature request.
