In my moderation (10k) tools screen, on the "close" tab, I see this when I expand the "Most Votes" section:
Notice that the questions are not listed in order of number of close votes, as they should be according to this:
The close category has views relating to questions that have been or are being closed or reopened:
- Most close votes, sorted by number of votes
This is true even if I click the "sort by close reason" link and then click the "sort by close votes" link. It's also true for all time selections (30d, 14d, 7d, 2d, today).
It does not appear to be related to caching either: the question with 3 votes is a much more recent entry into the close vote queue than ones both below and above it.
For me, the numbers immediately update when the number of close votes changes: I have found no discrepancy between the number shown on the tools screen and the number shown on the questions themselves. Furthermore, when I apply a close vote, and check the tools screen 30 seconds later, the counter has updated to reflect my new close vote.
