I found this related SE QA but it is not apparently clear to me, if moderators can see who flagged a post?

As a side question, I flagged a post, it said "declined" but the moderator did take action and deleted the post (which means my flagging was correct). Can something be done in this case so that my useful flags improve?

    About your side note, you might have used wrong flag. For example, if you flagged it with spam, mod might have deleted it for not an answer. This is just my guess though.

  • @yasar No I flagged it for not an answer link. It says declined - a moderator reviewed your flag, but found no evidence to support it

Yes, they can see who has flagged a post.

No, community moderators cannot improve fix values like users' useful flags (and honestly it one less useful flag count is not a big deal).
