Wikivoyage/de extensively uses Wikidata, for instance for marker, vCard and quickbar modules/templates. But a Wikibase Lua entity error is seldomly shown. Most of the articles shown in the category have neither error messages nor a tracking category.

Yeah. It's not only de-wikivoyage problem. A false positives are shown (T170039 can be connected only to part of them), some real errors are NOT displayed: for example pages and show error (T170039) but no entry in the category ( is shown.

So it's better to merge this task to T170039
