enableSmartSearch - Does it actually work?

Hello team! This feels to me like a beginners question, but i can’t wrap my head around enableSmartSearch preference and i will be glad if someone here can help me out.

When i define enableSmartSearch=false under user preferences, graylog doesn’t seem to react and continues to show me fields autocompletion suggestions under search query box.

I’m seeing this problem for quite some weeks now, getting the same result using different browsers and users with different privileges. For me, this is an unexpected behaviour. Is it a bug or my understanding of enableSmartSearch preference is wrong?

We’ve tried graylog versions 3.2.2 - 3.2.4.

After some more digging, I’ve gained more confidence and I think that this is indeed a bug.
