Formerly in these pages, there're labels when showing every items as long as those items have at least one label (in any languages). Now if items have no labels in fallback chain only Qid is shown. Qid indicates nothing.

This regression is caused by the fact that we consolidated the way language fallbacks work in different places. We now use the same (narrower) fallback mechanism everywhere. We are aware that this is not sufficient in some places, but there is no decision yet on how to best approach this, see T89213. As far as I remember, the old fallback to "any" language only worked if there was only exactly one label, not if there were more - which is broken and confusing. That's why we stopped doing that.
When I'm logged in and look at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/RobotMichiel1972 and switch to a language where "Nishoek" (Q19356829) has no label I till can see dutch labels (see attached screenshot). So to me it seems as the language fallback mechanism is still working as it did before. Cannot confirm this bug. However, if I'm logged out, I don't see labels but then I also don't see labels when I switch to dutch (even though it has a label in that language).
apparently we fixed this already, with a proper fix (probably https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/201062/):
