Is this a bug in the Feed?

mag3737 says:

I don't know if this is a bug or just something I don't understand about the Activity Feed (i.e. the page that you land on if you just go (logged in) to flickr.com).

I have a contact whose first (newest) photo in their photostream is not appearing in my Feed. Why might this be? I am viewing their photostream in Date Uploaded order.

The next several of their photos are in my Feed, scattered appropriately amidst quite a few from other people as this person has generally posted about 1 or 2-ish photos per 1 or 2-ish days in recent days.

I'm concerned with finally using/understanding the Feed page, partly because RA is finally going away. This is not immediately boosting my confidence. :-(

Hmm. Maybe this was a glitch. After a page-refresh, the photo is now present in my Feed. I scrolled up and down slowly and carefully THREE times before, and I'm certain it was not there before.

There is a sort of inverse "problem" (which I think is a beneficial and intentional feature) also. Sometimes a photo appears in the Feed but it is nowhere to be seen (at the top of) the contact's photostream. I think what is happening in this case is that the contact had the photo marked private for an extended time (days/weeks/months), and has only just now changed it to public. It's way back in their photostream somewhere, but because of this action now, Flickr displays it in the Feed.
