Honestly, the only examples where I think it's justifiable are all sci-fi/fantasy examples. So, for example, a wizard turned a year-old Labrador Retriever into an adult human. Sure, they're physically adult, but they've only been sapient for, like, a week, and they're still trying to get the hang of that whole "don't have to come when called" thing. They're not mentally challenged, but they're not mentally mature yet either. Depending on how the story's written, that character might be child-coded.

Height and hobbies don't code squat.

In any case, that's a thing so narrow and obscure it doesn't deserve any special fucking trope. Children on tumblr probably don't really know what being an adult _is_, so they can't distinguish an actual child from a non-standard version of adult they're imagining, whatever that shit is.
