The page_id value is correct where applicable, i.e. where the log item corresponds to a title that exists. In general, page_id is of limited use when inspecting logs.

The correct log_id values can be returned when log_id is live on Wikimedia, as previously noted.

Returning log_id to be zero is correct, since at the moment, we're faking the
column until it's live on Wikimedia.

Has this happened yet? If not, when will it happen?

No. No rush on it, as it doesn't look like a particularly pleasant operation.
