Changes to pages in category trees don't show up on Special:RecentChangesLinked
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

If I create a category tree and then go to Special:RecentChangesLinked, the changes to the pages in the category tree don't show up.

This is unfortunate because using a category tree would be the best way to generate a list of recent changes on a specific topic, which would be really useful for WikiProjects.

My guess on the cause of this issue is that pages on category trees don't get added to the pagelinks table, which is probably what Special:WhatLinksHere checks for.
