Backlinks tab does not show an embed if it's followed by a non-embed

Steps to reproduce

In the sandbox vault, create a new note with the following content:

![[Start Here]]

[[Start Here]]

And then open Start and open the Backlinks tab in the right sidebar.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

Both the embed ![[Start Here]] and the non-embed link [[Start Here]] should be displayed.

Actual result

Only the non-embed link [[Start Here]] is displayed and the embed ![[Start Here]] is ignored.

The “Linked mentions” counter is also wrong.

(But the number next to the title of the note containing the backlinks (Untitled 1 in the image below) indicates the correct number of backlinks.)

Additional information

When I swap the embed and the non-embed as below, the Backlinks tab works properly.

![[Start Here]]

Thanks, this is weird.
