Today, I got this post at the Mathematics Stack Exchange First Posts review queue. How is it possible that an answer posted 14 days ago by a user who

  • has already posted 25 answers
  • has been around for two weeks
  • whose reputation is 429

is considered a first post? Since it was not an audit, I suspect that it is due to a bug.

    Looking at the users history, that was their first post, what they did after is irrelevant math.stackexchange.com/users/794841/… This is not a bug, the post just got stuck in the queue for a while, I can't say why.

You'd have to confirm with one of the Mathematics ♦ moderators to know for sure, but I suspect the following happened: they've posted a question or answer before May 31st, that was reviewed, but the post has meanwhile been deleted, less than 24 hours ago. Now the system sees this is their first post, which hasn't been reviewed, and creates a review item for it.

For a user who is already so familiar with Stack Exchange as this one, it's unnecessary, but there are many cases of users who don't get it, and it's a Good Thing™ that (some of) their subsequent posts are reviewed as well.
