I've understood now, done a test, you are right. Thanks for helping, so we found the bug, I hope it will be solved. I am just a user, not a programmer, so I can't help further.
I confirm, I've tested again, the problem is in Cyrillic characters in search request, not in Mediawiki localization. Resolves if
$wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting = "true"/"false";
On my dev wiki, with the default value of $wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting I only get titles. This is expected behaviour.
As an aside, I don't know why you're setting it equal to "true" or "false"; true or false should be used as they are bools.
It is defined in DefaultSettings (like every other MW Core config) https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/REL1_36/includes/DefaultSettings.php#L7046-L7050
The code that uses it does
This has nothing to do with Wikimedia sites (!) in Russian language

I think I'm going to reopen this, so maybe someone can repeat the bug or tell me about some checkings I can do. I really don't think that the problem in that tool, there's something wrong with MediaWiki.
Whatever "SoftAculus" is, we have nothing to do with that. Feel free to ask in support forums instead.
I don't really think that the problem is in it, Softaculous Auto Installer is an auto installer soft that create identical to manually installed wiki, many hoster providers use it. This soft doesn't modify wiki files except for DB and folder variables.

The strange thing is that
$wgAdvancedSearchHighlighting = "false";
give the same result, while the absence of this variable leads to the absence of text exceptions in search results at all.
It was not so evident, but the solution was very simple: you have to set

The latest version of the extension still doesn't work on MediaWiki 1.36 with the same problem.
I have the same problem with my MySQL shared hosting on clean 1.34 MediaWiki. I use Russian local. The search results give me only headers, despite of search by key words actually works.
