I had flagged some comments as obsolete (here on meta), but the flagging history page in my profile (for meta) is still completely empty. I know that comment flags are not listed individually, so – as expected – the main list below "Flagging Summary" is empty. (I have not yet flagged any questions or answers.)
Still, I would have expected that the flag counters (including the comment flag counter) are shown on the right-hand page border below "Your flagging history". Currently, there are no counters at all.
The flagging history page is the same as in the screen shot in this question, but I don't think that I am experiencing exactly the same problem: my main profile page says "helpful flags 0".
The comments to the above question say that the discrepancy could be caused because the flagged comments have been deleted in the meantime. This is not the case – I remember which ones they were, and they are still both there. However I noticed that the flag icon (when you hover over the comment) re-appeared for one of them. Does this mean that the obsolete flag for that one comment has already been processed (and rejected) by an operator?
Am I assuming something wrong? Or is this a bug in the system? Possibly that the counters are only shown once I have at least one non-comment flag?
