Protection interface displays 'Allow all users' despite $wgNamespaceProtection being applied
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Properties on Wikidata are semi-protected by $wgNamespaceProtection (see T254280), but if you visit e.g. https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?title=Property:P7006&action=protect then there is no mention that the property is semi-protected, and 'Allow all users' is displayed as an option, even though it will not work. See below for a screenshot. Ideally the list should allow switching between semi-protection and admin-protection options only. This is apparently a general issue with how $wgNamespaceProtection works, rather than being Wikidata-specific.
