Additional information

It works correctly in markdown links.

We don’t support this. Please, Open a feature request.

How is it a separate feature if it works in a consistent way in normal text and in markdown links, but it doesn’t in wikilinks? If the wikilinking warps how text is interpreted then it’s clearly a bug.

Because we made up wikilinks and we did not evision any processing (including escaping) to occur in the alias part.
So please search/open a feature request for that.
