Yes, but that's not the same thing. There are many completions
of `i buffer TAB', and there's no indication that the `buffers'
one will take you to a definition. (An index entry like `buffer,
definition' would make that clear.)
In any case, the enhancement request explicitly acknowledged

The request is to optionally highlight occurrences of the
term, so that you can notice that it's a glossary term and immediately jump to
it from any context that uses it.
