That's normal, as view _bind is not expected to cache any external names.

Do you have non-empty cache DB RRsets but still not see anything about
outgoing queries?  If, for example, this is an authoritative-only
server, it's possible that named doesn't send any outgoing query (and
in that case there should be no cache DB RRsets).

(I know this is not an answer to the question but)
If your views aren't expected to have non-empty statistics, you don't
have to worry about these things.
