noarticletext uses an internal link by default in MediaWiki in the English translation.
If some websites decided to locally override that text, then it's up to those websites (and their community) to potentially fix that themselves.
@Aklapper thanks for the links. For posterity, I've submitted my request at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template_talk:No_article_text&type=revision&diff=886164298&oldid=863150939&diffmode=source.
