According to the package tracker [0], the migration has been held up
about two years because of bug #768843 [1].  Looking at the bug, a
version of fetchmail which fixes that bug has been uploaded to
experimental in June.  I expect that once the maintainer is ready,
perhaps when upstream makes a final release, that a new package will be
uploaded to unstable and will eventually migrate to buster.
