The name of the person being quoted is just a text parameter of the {quote} BBcode tag, I do not think it carries a reference to the quoted user or anything like that. I can just do

and it quotes you (and properly links to your account if you click your name in the quote) without having to be connected to any of your posts.

I don't think changing the author of all quotes when someone changes their forum name would be feasible or even possible; unless you want to look for all occurrences of {quote="name"} across all the forums.
Forum Tip: if you want a faster response from me, quote my post! Hit the Q button to the right of the post. This sends me a message so I can notice you sooner!
