Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Sometimes when I browse older questions I find questions that are clearly off topic for StackOverflow and should be migrated.

So I vote close - off-topic on the question. But the problem is the question was asked one year ago has totally 100 views. This means that the question will not get 5 close votes for ages.

Do the question I voted "off-topic" get more attention by e.g. moderators or 10k users, so it makes sense for me to vote "off-topic"? or should I flag the question for moderator attention instead?

We have tools where we can see recent off-topic (and other close) flags, so yes; it is useful to do that. There will be lots of different cases of old questions/answers that will eventually be moderated in some way due to refining of the focus of the sites over time.
