I'm noticing this more recently where flagging off-topic questions aren't being listed in my flagging summary. Consequently, my flag weight is also not updated -- it remains stagnant regardless of how many illegitimate questions I flag.

Is this a recent change to Code Review I'm not aware of or due to something else?

Once I've noticed the same with "Duplicate of https://stackoverflow.com/..." or similar flag message. Maybe it's a feature, since in this case users could use the close function. Unfortunately there are only 50 500+ rep users, so flagging is more effective than close votes.
