Within a certain site, when I link to any question or answer for a reference, I've been using short URL's like /q/12345 or /a/12345, and these are linking and redirecting correctly.

But the linked questions are not listed in the Linked section of the current post.

For example, in this very question I have linked to this answer to "What does #Soreadytohelp mean?" using the short URL, and as you can see it is not listed in the Linked section.

Is using shortened URL's recommended here or not?
