Backlinks are not correctly recognised. Depending on what character comes immediately after the [[link]] Obsidian identifies them differently. Screenshot is attached
- Create Note A and B in sandbox vault.
- Insert in Note A:
%% tags: [[testing]], [[backlinking]]
- Insert in Note B:
%% tags: [[backlinking]], [[testing]]
Open either of the created links.
Did you follow the troubleshooting guide?
Yes I did.
Note A and B should both be linked mentions
Note B is an unlinked mention

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.
