I think the "parent" issue is that The Deep and Abandoned Town region types don't have any native monsters that don't need unlocking assigned to them.
Thus, if you can make it to The Deep or Abandoned Town areas without triggering any of their monster types' unlock requirements, you can get silly situations like these.

|Unlocking isn't the problem. Both of these region types always have monsters that can spawn in them, but those monsters don't show up in Anachronism missions, either because they're specifically forbidden (entropy bats, sniper balloons) or because they're too big to be seeded in the rooms (Thul heads, small urban mechs).|

I think I can explain this, at least for indoors Fix Anachronism missions (are they all indoors, or are there some cave FA missions?).
At least on continent 2, I think the only Deep monsters that spawn indoors are bats.
Bats are forbidden from Fix Anachronism missions, as far as I know.
--> If a Fix Anachronism mission is indoors, there are no acceptable Deep monsters that can spawn in it.
A solution would be to make an exception for indoors Fix Anachronism missions, letting Thul Heads and Tentacles spawn indoors, just for these missions.
I think this is already done in most regions, where you can find Whirlwinds and those Fast Fireball Hedgehogs, normally never spawning indoors, instead allowed to spawn for these missions.
