It was hinted it could have been an illusion.

Though the emotional pain was very real.

tbh, I think Sand gnomes were just a joke from Blizzard and should not be taken seriously

Pygmees look different from Sand gnomes and I do not think they are related to gnomes.

Both of those creatures have their own models now, so yes - they were placeholders.

It's a joke/pop culture quest. It's not meant to be taken serious. Just like Star Wars TFU

An Explorer's League Researcher says mockingly to Chief Archaeologist Letoll "This reminds me of that one time where you made us search Silithus for evidence of sand gnomes."

Then in the next quest, you fight actual sand gnomes in the Bone Wastes. Upon completion, Dwarfowitz says "Sand gnomes? Yea, sure... The desert can do strange things to a person."

No anwser has been given. I blame hallucinations... but they can kill you...

The pygmies on the Lost Isles are not gnomes.

They probably snuck through the portal like all the other creatures that are on Outland but look just like the kind on Azeroth. If I remember from those quests, at the end doesn't the quest giver say something about being convinced that they actually exist?
