Yes, there was a little confusion between the search highlights and the occurrences one.
What I was looking for is the latter, after one year I confused it with the search highlights that can be useful but force you to enter the search mode.
I think this features is now implemented, not sure in which version but the behavior Adam describe works also on the iPhone version and is what I was talking about.
I would need this feature too
