This is already broken. In Org syntax,

  * Headline

means a paragraph containing ":RESULTS:" text, then an headline
containing a section with a paragraph containing ":END:" text. In other
words, headlines have precedence over drawers.

Expecting Org to recognize a drawer here is like playing with fire. You
cannot know when it will burn you.
