Are regulations construed to be part of law on this site? Specifically, I have in mind a question like the one I asked on politics SE about some UK farming/animal-welfare regulations.

I did a bit of searching here on law-meta, but I could not find a prior discussion on something like this.

Are questions about regulations on-topic?

Yes. The question "is the height of the hutches regulated in the UK at least relative to the calves inside them?" is intended to ascertain what, if anything, legislation says regarding animal control/care/protection. Therefore it is on topic regardless of whether the matter at issue is, or has ever been, regulated.

Even if a question does not refer to legislation at all, the matter could be on topic by virtue of contract, equity, or public policy.

    Examples that are not legislation but on topic: Court Rules (they are not made by legislative), Trial Tactics.
