Ideally we'd have the same search behaviour in all search boxes,
although I see that part selection is different from footprint selection
because the use case "same part number, different vendor prefix" doesn't
come up. Same behaviour is less surprising though.

We could give priority to results anchored on the left side, as well as
based on the left of the match in any case.
