Yes, they are separate issues.

If you are only using GSSAPI there is no need for the SSH hostkey as the validity of the host is verified through gssapi/kerberos.

Bug #28488 is about when using GSSAPI and connecting to a host it should try both host/shortname and host/fqhn, not only the name you are using to connect with. Actually it is probably better to first try host/fqhn and then host/shortname, as it is probably more common to use host/fqhn@REALM.
