You're right that the phrasing is awkward, but technically they mean different things. "Deleted recent questions" are questions posted recently that have been deleted. "Recently deleted questions" are questions that were deleted recently, no matter how old they were. I think the former is how the page actually works, so "recently deleted questions" would be wrong, but they should come up with a better way to phrase it. In any case, this is already reported herehere
