HTTP -> HTTPS script didn't change everything

In 2017 the network decided to implement the HTTPS protocol, as was announced in Network-wide HTTPS: It's time. Although that post isn't completely marked as I think most, if not all, of that came through.

During that process there was a script that converted all links in posts from HTTP:// to HTTPS://, as you can see in the screenshot below (freehand circle mine).

A screenshot of a revision by the community user with description: "replaced http://stackoverflow.com/ with https://stackoverflow.com/". two links in text are changed, but it failed to replace a link to a chat transcript inside a blockquote

Was this intended behaviour?
