I'm not sure if this is by design or because of limitations in the
markdown dialect used by org mode (see
http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown) or just a bug. My
suspicion, after a quick review of the markdown syntax on the
daringfireball site is that search links are not supported.

This is one of those examples of the problems arising from a format type
which does not have a specification. There are numerous different
markdown dialects and org had to select one. Problem is, everyone gets
use to a particular dialect and then is often disappointed when org's
dialect does not match their expectations. One reason we also have the
github flavoured markdown exporter.
