Perhaps you misunderstood what was in square brackets in my example

I-search: local variables [(emacs)File variables]

`(emacs)File variables' is not the name of the current node and file.
It is the name of the reference to another info file and node which is
normally hidden by `Info-hide-note-references'.  The purpose of text
in square brackets is to show hidden reference names under the search point.

This is especially useful in browser-like buffers (e.g. w3m)
to show URLs of displayed link texts.

Some web browsers (for example, text mode browser ELinks) already has
such a feature where during typeahead search URLs are displayed
in square brackets:

Typeahead: gnu project [http://www.gnu.org/]

In Emacs this will look similarly:

I-search: gnu project [http://www.gnu.org/]
