Bug count not correct

I'm particularly interested in the bug count. It has 0 bug x5.

When I check all my posts related with the tag bug,

Bug count

There's 6 results with a total of more than 20 upvotes. I know that tags counts are

denormalized, and updated periodically

Can see that a similar problem is happening in other tags, like "review", and I've read about tag calculation.

The score shown in the tags tab in your profile is only the score obtained from the non-CW answers. (And you have no answers in this tag.) The score in the tag is calculated in the same way for the purposes of the tag badges and in the list of top answerers.

Actually, if you hover over the number next to the tag, you are shown a more detailed information.


It might also be worth mentioning that the scores in the profile aren't updated immediately. (See: Tag numbers in profile delayed?)
