      These experiments involve marker armorstands – it also affects area effect clouds with zero radius. Most likely the bug occurs due to these armorstands lacking a hitbox.

      Setup experiment
      In this scenerio the armorstands involved in the testing were obtained as follows:

      /summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {CustomName:"\"A\"",Marker:X}
      /execute at @e[name=A] run summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {CustomName:"\"B\"",Marker:X}

      Note that the X is either a 0 or 1 depending on the following cases.

      Results experiment
      We distinguish the following 3 cases

      • Case 1: ArmorStand A is not a marker, ArmorStand B is not a marker.
        execute at @e[name=A] run kill @e[name=B,distance=0]

        Kills B, works as expected

        execute at @e[name=B] run kill @e[name=A,distance=0]

        Kills A, works as expected

      • Case 2: ArmorStand A is a marker, ArmorStand B is not a marker.
        execute at @e[name=A] run kill @e[name=B,distance=0]

        Kills B, works as expected

        execute at @e[name=B] run kill @e[name=A,distance=0]

        Does not kill A, does not work as expected

      • Case 3: ArmorStand A is a marker, ArmorStand B is a marker.
        execute at @e[name=A] run kill @e[name=B,distance=0]

        Does not kill B, does not work as expected

        execute at @e[name=B] run kill @e[name=A,distance=0]

        Does not kill A, does not work as expected

      Further research
      I've had a talk about these seemingly bugs with SkylinerW who in the MC community is a well respected modder/'expert' on Minecraft. This talk can be found back in this reddit topic:

      Here are some extracts from our conversation that might help you guys further, credit to SkylinerW:

      "That one definitely seems to be a bug. It's not just armor stands, but any entity that is in the ground; I can't get the command to work even if there's a villager with its feet stuck in a block directly underneath the armor stand without increasing the radius to 2 (r=1 still presents the problem, so it's not restricted to r=0). It's specific to the Y coordinate, so it seems like their interpreted location is being skewed for being within a block. I imagine the eye height for marker stands being at the exact Y value causes it to be seen as being within a block.

      Code analysis by marcono1234 can be found in this comment.

      Also this can be more easily tested with this being run in chat while you don't move:

      summon armor_stand ~ ~ ~ {NoGravity:1b,Marker:1b,CustomName:"\"c\""}
      say @e[distance=0]

      this'll only show your name and not the armor stand's, unless you change it to Marker:0b
