Here is what happens to 0 stock quantity item in Opencart 184.108.40.206 by default. By design, 0 stock item are showing is because the item can be set as “pre-order” item.

Note: remember that this modification helps if you are not doing any “pre-orders” item cause it no longer allow you to pre-order once the quantity is set to 0 in your product page.
