I noticed that Courthouse only had maintenance categories, and no real categories, but was not appearing on Special:UncategorizedPages.
So, I removed the categories from {{more}}, {{cleanup}}, {{image}}, and {{fact}}. I was intending to put them back as soon as the special pages refreshed, but something I wasn't anticipating was that the template caches were purged AFTER the special pages.
I didn't manually purge the templates after editing them, so Special:UncategorizedPages is still empty, even though Courthouse is currently displaying with no categories at all.

I guess I'll just try again tomorrow. For now, I've restored the categories, and flushed the caches so everything is back to normal.

I'm going to create a "purge" template to add to the top of all template pages as a reminder to flush the cache after editing.

Update, the next day

An hour before special page refresh time, I removed the categories, and purged the caches, and double checked that Courthouse did not have any categories.

An hour later, the special pages have refreshed, yet Special:UncategorizedPages is still empty.

I was thinking "maybe I should leave the templates without categories for 24 hours, but then I realised it wouldn't matter, it's not a caching issue, because the templates didn't have categories yesterday: they were re-added after yesterday's special page refresh, then removed before today's.

I don't know what's going on.

Update, the next day

I put in a support request yesterday, to ask if there were any known issues, explained the situation, and linked here.

They manually purged the special pages cache, and 1 page appeared in the list, along with 2 test pages.
So after all this, I've added a category to Theft.

Oh, so this is what I did before I bored the people in the chat with random commentary of technical issues.
