Link between artist and release-group is missing but reverse link exists

For this release-group - https://musicbrainz.org/release-group/9507c4fe-1265-434f-928c-7ec27f98dac1
I don’t link from artist home page - https://musicbrainz.org/artist/779d1126-e48c-43f2-8b51-005f3b116d7e
But on the release-group artist is correctly identified. How is this possible? Could it be fixed?

If you look at the release the release status is marked as “Promotion” not “Official”.

If you down to the artist page and click the “show all release groups instead” button it will show up in the list.

Looking at the editing history it was added by a radio station so the edition they have was promotional for them so this could potentially be valid. Perhaps they have a pre-release edit and this could potentially be different from the final version.
Feel free to add a new release or change the status to official.

I have to disagree with this. You should never change the status like that unless you have proof that the promotional version does not exist and was entered in error.
