[bioontology-support] don't use subtree search with maxnumhits

I was trying to use the REST API to search chemo regimen in NCI Thesaurus
by setting the subtreeconceptid to the Chemotherapy Regimen term (C62634).
When I searched for ATRA, I was shocked that there were no hits:
Upon investigation, it turns out that setting maxnumhits was the issue.
Maybe it is doing the subtree filter AFTER taking the top 15 hits?!
Could you please confirm my understanding? Is it the intended behavior?
