They don't; not really.

The only time I remember seeing a glibc minor version change was after
the most recent Debian stable release, when testing started merging
packages from unstable again, and I had TONS of packages that apt
thought I needed to upgrade.  I therefore doubt (but don't know for
sure) that glibc's version ever changes inside a single Debian release,
and when you switch between releases, you basically reinstall everything

However, I don't know that for sure...
