I don't mind these quests - as long as they are really scarce and have a good backstory.
The "grinding factor" can imho be avoided with never letting the amount/number of these "filler quests" be greater than the amount/number of the "proper quests".
Personally, I'd roughl guess 1/5 "filler quests", or even less.
The point is to let the player never reach/have the feeling as if these quests were included just for filling. This can be difficult, I guess, but I also think it is manageable to a certain grade.
