Please look at this commit:

DIALOG: Improvements to the Find & Replace dialog.

It has provided improvements to the "Find and Replace" dialog. On the
other hand, it created a regression in accessibility, because the
number of found/replaced items were no longer announced by the screen readers like NVDA. The problem is discussed in tdf#117173:

Bug 117173 - Search Dialog does not provide search results to
Assistive Technology tools at 5.2 and later

In this Gerrit submission:

tdf#117173 Add popup for # of items found/replaced

I tried to re-introduces the popup for the number of found/replaced
items, making the screen readers able to read the number of
found/replaced items. The search result label is currently kept in its
place, and it is updated as before.

This behavior is similar to MSO, from the oldest versions to the
latest. The popup for the number of found and replaced is still
available in MSO 2019.

I would like to know the idea of design people on this change.
