When exactly was Bilbo first considered to be unusual, as compared to other hobbits?
In The Hobbit, it is said that:
The Bagginses had lived in the neighbourhood of The Hill for time out of mind, and people considered them very respectable, not only because most of them were rich, but also because they never had any adventures or did anything unexpected: [...]. This is a story of how a Baggins had an adventure, and found himself doing and saying things altogether unexpected. He may have lost the neighbours' respect, but he gained- well, you will see whether he gained anything in the end.
The Hobbit - An Unexpected Party
This seems to imply that Bilbo was considered queer after he came back from his adventure (Quest of Erebor), as his dealings with Wizards and Dwarves became known in the Shire.
However, in Unfinished Tales, it is stated:
"Somehow I had been attracted by Bilbo long before, as a child, and a young hobbit: he had not quite come to age when I had last seen him. He had stayed in my mind ever since, with his eagerness and bright eyes, and his love of tales, and his questions about the wide world outside the Shire."
Unfinished Tales - The Quest of Erebor (Gandalf)
This, in contrast, seems to say that Bilbo was already quite different from normal Hobbits even before his participation in the Quest of Erebor, as he is shown to be quite inquisitive about the outside world.
Is this just an inconsistent narrative of the text or am I just misreading it? When exactly was Bilbo first regarded as queer (or unusual) by his fellow neighbors in Hobbiton?
Note: a queer hobbit is defined as a hobbit who does things out of the ordinary (for hobbits): having dealings with the 'outside world', meetings with other races etc.
