Well, `search-invisible' is documented as only applying to interactive


search-invisible is a variable defined in ‘isearch.el’.
Its value is ‘open’

If t incremental search/query-replace can match hidden text.
A nil value means don’t match invisible text.


If you want code not to match invisible text, you have to make your code
check for the visibility.  Closing.
