Why is the OSM wiki search returning unexpected results and not the search term?

When search for ladder in the wiki, I get

Showing results for layer. No results found for ladder.

But if I search for "ladder", I see there are many results actually containing the word ladder.

So I wonder, what is the purpose of the blatantly wrong claim when searching for ladder?
I am used to idiotic search word changes coming from search engine “intelligence”, but they are usually something like “did you want to search for layer?” and not lies.
