SharePoint Online - unable to manually start Power Automate when results are filtered through search

I created to SharePoint Online list then created a column where I have a button that launches a PA. I'm using what's documented below and swapped out my PA ID.

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/declarative-customization/column-formatting#create-a-button-to-launch-a-flow

The PA runs fine if I go to the list and execute it or if I use the 'filter' option in the upper right. However, it's a dead link when I use Search this site then try to click on the PA button to run it.

I don't get this web call when I have filtered an item through Search this site as I would normally get without using Search this site.

https://api.flow.microsoft.com/providers/microsoft.processsimple/environments....

Is this a bug or expected behavior? Is there any Microsoft documentation available if it's expected behavior?

    I tested and reproduced your problem in my own environment.

    According to my research, I have not seen an explanation of this phenomenon in any official documentation.

    I also tested other column formats, this problem occurs only when a custom button that calls flow after a search occurs.

    It does not occur if we call email or other behavior.

    This looks more like a bug or error.

    I'm sorry, but so far I haven't found an alternative workaround.

    I recommend that you submit feedback below this official document and look forward to subsequent explanations and solutions.
