When I approve a pull request, it stays approved even if there are new commits are added to it before being merged. This means potentially unreviewed code could be merged, since for another administrator it is not clear that the new commit arrived after approval.

For Bitbucket Cloud: it's a premium feature (paid accounts only). Add a "Branch Permission" and then click on "Merge Checks" within the newly added Branch Permission and select this option: "[x] Reset approvals when the source branch is modified."
