Unlinked mentions vs search

What do unlinked mentions do that searching for a notes title does not?

And if it is equivalent to searching a notes title, maybe a small, clickable “search” icon next to a notes title (or individual headers) could have been a nice way to implement unlinked mentions.


Unlinked mentions = search for note title


Linked mentions (aka backlinks) = search for [[note title]]
