0003594: Adventure mode zombie kills for quests are not recognized
If you kill a zombie creature in Adventure Mode, they turn to dust. However, that is not registered as a death by the quest engine. Getting a quest to kill a zombie dragon, I defeated it and it turned to dust. However, the quest was unfulfilled and I was unable to report it or otherwise complete it, as the zombie dragon was dead already after all.
Get a quest to kill a zombie monster (Like a dragon), kill it. It turns to dust but the quest is not completed, it still tells you to kill that creature.
No tags attached.

I encountered this with a zombie Cougar - destroyed it, it vanished, but the quest was still there in my log.

Yeah, as per 0002357, undead kills aren't properly recognized unless you lethally strike the undead, so I guess this is a child issue from that.
