AFAIK, Mageia do not do that.
Mandriva and openSUSE both use a custom build system.

But on a conceptual level, that's not hard.

The way we could do it for Fedora is to see if there is a build on koji
( using fedmsg ), see if that a library, see the abi has changed ( using
some kind of filter and a database ), and so run some script that
rebuild and bump the spec on rawhide in mock, mail errors if any, and if
not, just send it to koji.
