There are 87 square numbers that use every digit (base 10, no leading zeroes)) exactly once.

List them.

Yes it does.

But you can get much closer if you extend this parameter and add another one:

a. As to the quantity of qualifying 10- digit numbers 9*9! is totally unacceptable number- the upper bond is definitely below 270451- the number quoted in A036755 (#of 10 last distinct digits of a square -
 without "no leading zeroes disclaimer") .

b. Once  you divide Charlie's list into 9 sectors, considering the most significant digit,you will find how far from uniform the distribution is:
the shortest  interval (starting with digit 3 claims 18 out 87 answers,-  while the longest  (starting with 1)- only 6.

In each of those intervals there are 9! pandigital  numbers , but with different chances to be a square (comment  later, below).
As to  67389 "roots" - dense in the beginning - scarcer   towards the upper band.

Imagine trying to extrapolate the unknown number ( 87)- having on hand one of the subset's data - no matter what algorithm you apply - you'll get different numbers.


My conclusion -  Given 2 sets of integers  A of n(A)  members and B   of n(B)- you can define the bonds for n( intersection set A x B) :  generally between 0 and <n(the smaller set). 
 The result might be close to the ratio n(A)/N(B) for an  uniform distribution in both sets -but for a non-uniform only the upper and lower bonds are known .

Our case is not of intersection but of matching - not solvable in general case.
