The apropos command has pretty much the same problem with filtering and

It offers more matches because it finds what completion cannot.

See also what I wrote about apropos sorting.

Even if I start using apropos and the manual more, I will continue using
code completion and describe-xxx commands nevertheless, and better
naming would still help there.
It's okay to decide not to use some of the tools we have, if you don't
like them.  I'm talking to those who might decide otherwise.

Regardless of whether I regularly use the manual or not, it's not okay to dismiss subpar code completion experience just because we have separate commands that also do a more free-form search.
