In my recently deleted questions, those that have been marked as duplicates show up as "[on hold]" or "[closed]", which should show up as "[duplicate]". Examples:

  • A question that was marked as a duplicate less than 5 days ago and later deleted will show up as "[on hold]" in the recently deleted list:

    on hold duplicate

  • A question that was marked as a duplicate more than 5 days ago and later deleted will show up as "[closed]" in the recently deleted question list:

    closed duplicate

  • However, when you click on such a question and view it, the "[duplicate]" indicator shows up properly:

    duplicate duplicate

Is this by design, or is it a bug?

  • I don't really see why it would be particularly important to distinguish the two from that view. On the /questions page, when looking for a question/answer whether it's a dup or not is often enough quite relevant. I don't see why it would be important to distinguish the two on that page though; you're generally not going there to look for an answer. – Servy Nov 18 '13 at 17:52

This will be fixed in the next deploy.

That page just wasn't querying for the "duplicate"-y-ness of questions.
