If you hover over those zeroes, you'll see something like "0 of 0".

Maybe this lost in translation (back and forth?), but the way your OP
came across was kind of rude, implying the systems are actually mis-
configured. To me at least.

There is a difference between asking whether there might be a problem
(expressing a concern, preferably backed-up by some facts), and outright
asking the contributors to check it (reasoning it would be "inconvenient
enough that it might have been skipped").

Becoming a mass-check contributor and maintaining the system is much
more inconvenient, than inheriting these options.
