We have a validation rule that says it was last updated on day X by a user. However, in the audit log, there are no entries for this VR on that day, nor the user was active on that day.

Any ideas what actions can happen to a VR, but not be tracked in Audit Log?

Documentation doesn't get specific and just says changes to validation rules are tracked.

However, in a quick test I confirmed the following changes to the Validation Rule were shown in the Setup Audit Trail

  • Name updates
  • Error Condition formula updates
  • Error Message
  • Error Location
  • Active

In terms of your question, only one change was not tracked:

  • Description

I would assume that is the scenario you're looking at since it doesn't appear in the Audit log.
