It is usually not necessary to rebuild all packages using a specific lib
just because it got updated.

The debian people are doing that, so that would be something to ask
them, specifically the package maintainers (see
https://packages.debian.org/jessie/stunnel4). But since jessie support
ended last June and LTS won't rebuild , I would not hold my breath.

Why do you care about this in the first place? You are using a stunnel
version that is 4 years old and got last patched more than 3 years ago.
If it's of any importance to you, you should really upgrade to stretch
(optionally with bpo) or at least use jessie-backports.
