0004585: Building destroyers don't have to be adjacent to destroy buildings
Trolls (and maybe the rest of building destroyers) can destroy hatches/grates (and maybe other objects) while are in 1 tiles of it (not next to it).
BUILDINGDESTROYER, Intentional/Expected?

This has always been the case - building destroyers have a long reach.

is it a bug or a feature?

That is how it was intended to be I suppose.

Or they can do it even through solid walls?

There are doors in my caverns that surrounded by cage traps and always draw trolls' attention, so their behaviour is always the same: they stand tile away from a door for some time, then the door gets destroyed, but the troll ends up in an adjacent to the door cage trap like if he'd made step forward.
