The pound character has a special meaning in links. It denotes custom
IDs. Here,

  [[file:test.org::#+TITLE: test]]

means you're looking for a headline with the CUSTOM_ID property set to
"+TITLE: test" in the file "test.org"

Therefore, it is automatically removed in another context, e.g., in text

However, the export process doesn't resolve text searches. 

If you want to link to a specific part of the text, you can use
a target.
