It is not directly related to Org, though indeed annoying. I reported
this unexpected behaviour to mailman@gnu.org

Note that org-complex-heading-regexp-format does consider statistics
cookies, but only at the beginning/end of the headline title.
Unfortunately, it is impossible to provide generic printf format to
match a headline title with arbitrary statistics cookies inserted in the
middle of it.

As for your other report, it is a hard one - org-complex-heading-regexp
is hard to modify because we guarantee certain match groups and its hard
to fit COMMENT in there without breaking backward-compatibility.

I generally dislike the idea of the available plethora of analytic
regexps with numbered match groups. I am currently working on
generalised Org element matcher that provides named groups for arbitrary
Org syntax elements, including headlines.
