0005061: World gen constructions made of "rock" rather than a specific stone (roads, bridges, castles, sewers, catacombs, dungeons)
When walking through a Human city, I noticed that the road was made of "rock" (e.g. INORGANIC:NONE) - presumably, these should be made of an actual type of stone.

By comparison, the city's walls were made of sphalerite (which is just 0003725).

A bridge over a nearby brook was also made of "rock".

In a mudstone castle, the Lord's keep was mostly made of mudstone, but the upper floors (and columns and stairs, but NOT the outer walls) were made of "rock".

Sewers as well. Presumably, the same goes for catacombs and dungeons.

Interestingly, if I embark on one of these features in Fortress mode (using a hack to forcibly allow embarking on such sites), then they're made of a proper material (generally a nearby layer stone, even for the interiors of castle keeps when the walls are made of something else).

I've seen this bug in fortress mode as well. Like the linked duplicate, deconstructing the rock block floor (in the world-gen tunnels) leaves magma. In addition, there are no rock blocks, but I assume that's because they melt due to their high fixed temperature.

my report was in fortress mode... but it was a duplicate.

Still present in DF 0.40.19 I can post a save if you want.

Found a bridge made from "rock block"s as an adventurer in 40.24 (world made in 40.20)

I can confirm this still exists for 42.05. I reclaimed a worldgen fortress and both the above-ground and below-ground roads are made of "rock block"s. (As far as I can tell all the other pre-made constructions are fine.)

When I deconstructed a couple of tiles I got a pool of magma (not 1/7 magma, an actual magma pool item or contaminant) instead of a block, which was promptly cleaned up by some fastidious dwarves. I assume it melted at a low temperature rather than actually being hot because some other dwarves walked over it without issue. I guess this means it's grabbing some default melting point from somewhere.
