Special:Protectedpages does not show pages that were protected prior to late
January. It probably did not inherit all the pages that were protected prior to
the creation of the special page or its activation.

It only queries the new protection table, whereas older protections where
crammed into one column of the page table. They are still checked for protection
status but not for protected pages.
I guess we could just do a fix specifically for Protectedpages, but it seems more sensible to fix
all the new stuff without having to indefinitely maintain references to the obsolete page columns,
so I've repurposed this bug a bit to a specific solution.
