Backlinks not recognised correctly when in comment block

Backlinks are not correctly recognised. Depending on what character comes immediately after the [[link]] Obsidian identifies them differently. Screenshot is attached

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create Note A and B in sandbox vault.
  2. Insert in Note A:
tags: [[testing]], [[backlinking]]
  1. Insert in Note B:
tags: [[backlinking]], [[testing]]

Open either of the created links.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?

Yes I did.

Expected result

Note A and B should both be linked mentions

Actual result

Note B is an unlinked mention

Additional information

This happens only if the links are inside a comment block. Behaviour is the same regardless of what character comes after ]] (whitespace, comma, other string etc)
I use the comment block as a “backmatter” style of linking topics, since frontmatter links do not work.

you did not use the correct syntax.
