[bioontology-support] missing search results in NCI Thesaurus

On the NCI Thesaurus, when the user searches for 'Age', the results do not
include some of the matches I was expecting:
Some expected results:
Age at First Live Birth
Age at Menarche
Age at Menopause
Age at Time of Vaccination
Search results contained 17 hits, but only a few from that list. In
particular, the search results missed both "Age" and "Age-Years".
What is strange to me is that 'Age-Months' was on the list. Can someone
help me better understand the search behavior of bioportal to explain this?
Maybe its failing because the search string is on a stoplist or its just
too short/too common?
