Like I said, a moderator or dev will add it into Mantis. generally the topic will have the bug number appended to the title (but of course if there are several topics for a wish, not every topic will have the number appended).
And if the devs decide that it doesn't need to be there is there any way to find out?
No, not really. Features are prioritized. I don't think there are usually situations where whole features are "ruled out", per se. It's more like certain features are prioritized over others due to forum popularity, ease of implementation, etc.
