I haven’t noticed a way in Trac to denote that the issue is fixed and waiting to be merged. This means that I frequently look up tickets that I have forgotten I have fixed. It also means that I have a sub-optimal process for merging to master.

I usually leave a message that the ticket is fixed in develop with a
link to the commit. With Boost.Log I periodically merge develop into
master and then close all those tickets. This way I'm sure I don't
forget anything.

It doesn't work well with cherry picking approach though. Maybe it is
possible to create pull requests to merge individual commits from
develop to master, but I didn't try. In any case, a new status would
be useful at least to be able to filter such tickets.
