Solving blocking issue should reopen blocked ticket

When ticket A is blocked by B, and ticket is B is somehow fixed/closed/rejected ticket A should be unblocked.

Why it is not and we need to check blocking tickets manually?

Because each JIRA Project have their own requirements and putting restrictions by default and assuming everyone wants that is bad design.

Is there any way of automating what Tomasz wants?

/me makes script-runner noises.

It needs a bit of code in a listener or post-function that can pick up the particular events where something should be done, iterate over the links (assuming that's how the  blocks are being represented in this particular case), and examine the other ends to unblock them (and that could be a field or a transition itself)

Gabrielle is spot on as usual.  There are so many different ways you could be representing "blocks", there's no way you could anticipate and code for every single case.  So you need to find/write the code to support your particular implementation.
