Orphan instance : an instance without a main component

Hi everyone! I’m seeking for help!
I work on a file from another designer, so I didn’t do the setup.
I found an instance with not possibility to go to the main component: there is no main component in the file, nor in a library file.
There is no button “restore component”.

Is this a bug?
How can I find its main component?
How can I identify all instances in the same case?
Is there a way or a plugin to display all instances with their main component source file?

I’m a little bit desperate, there are hundreds components, from several libraries (v4, v5, v6…)
