I personally would be -1 then( to this point ),  because if we state that
we cannot make release with blokers opened,  that would be not really wise
to make the actual release without their verification. How can we state
that the blocker was fixed and in addition what's then the point then to
make the issue as blocker and fix it in tight deadlines.
I think all blocker bugs should be verified by default, and other bugs just
when there's flag set by devs.

Yes, that is my understanding.
