Can someone confirm that features taged with a relation (with name) are not found on the search box of openstreetmap.org.

Example: Search for https://www.openstreetmap.org/search?query=Rota+da+Biodiversidade

https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/7617257#map=15/38.7083/-9.1999 Never found
https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/4060163673 Working fine

Unfortunately, the usage of the name tag for route relations by mappers is a mess. Some use real names like your example but many routes have descriptions as names, e.g. public transport routes with names like "Bus 45 Central Station => Zoo". That's why Nominatim does probably not support them.

Strange: how come Nominatim would hide information because of bad mapping practices? If even Nominatim does this, how contributors are supposed to correct the 'name' tag?

I'd search using Taginfo instead.
