I don't understand:

   C-s f o o ( b a r

does not search for "foo(bar)" but for "foo(bar" for me.

Right, sorry, just terminology:
Yes, a non-global minor mode is a buffer-local minor-mode.
But to me a "non regular" minor mode is one that doesn't quite follow
all the conventions (e.g. it's not implemented with define-minor-mode,
treats its argument slightly differently or doesn't take any argument,
