I didn't say anything about boundaries. I only asked, why the block selection is related to the search default when the block is a persistent block. This is completely illogical and unintuitive. The block maybe somewhere out of view of the user and is still used as search default? Who wants such a behaviour? And for what reason?

What has this have to do with default search strings?

Who wants the current behaviour? I doubt that anybody does. It is completely illogical for persistent blocks (it may have some merit for non-persistent blocks but not when blocks are persistent).
