In the Post settings for my board, there is an option to set a Bump interval, however, there doesn't seem to be any way to "bump" a topic without adding a reply. How is this feature supposed to work? Does it work?

Can forum administrators bump any topic without adding a reply? If so, how do I enable this feature?

Would making it a 'sticky' offer you another solution?

What happened to my bump button???  And why don't my edit times and dates work?

That's one way to draw attention to a topic, but it's not what I'm looking for. As an admin, I'd like to be able to bump certain older topics that have been referenced in a new topic. So far I'm having a hard time learning if this is possible. Apparently, nobody knows exactly how the "topic bump" feature works.

I don't have the bump interval option either.

WTF?! It appears that sometime between when I originally posted the image (evidence?) and now, that feature has been quietly removed. This suggests someone from Tapatalk was aware of the issue and simply removed the feature instead of address it? Who does that? 

The question remains, is it possible for admins to bump topics or not?

As far as I know, the bump option was not supported, hence the removal.
