It may well have moved into the abstract namespace and thus not be visible
in the filesystem.

If I run strace I see apps connecting  @/tmp/.X11-unix/X0 first, and only
if that doesn't exist, does the client try /tmp/.X11-unix/X0. The leading
'@' indicates a NUL character requesting the abstract namespace.

If /tmp/.X11-unix doesn't exist at all its possibly only listening on the
abstract namespace, and not the normal namespace. There should be CLI
args to change this behaviour when starting your X11 server.
