Advanced Search results not dependent on Field-Level Security

Global Search - Desktop

Salesforce has just confirmed to me that the search functionality will allow users to search fields that are hidden from them by field-level security.  When users search for a value in a field hidden to them, the search results will include the record that contains the field, even though users can't see it.

This just simply doesn't make common sense to me and could lead to user confusion when reviewing search results.
