Why is there a miss match in Search API vs Record Matching API results?

I have seen serveral example.

1. "Darby Group PLC"

2. "Samsung Bioepis Co Ltd"

etc will return result when using search API, but will return 0 result on Record Matching. What am I missing here? Isn't Search and Record Matching the same?

I got the response from the product team.

"Search and Match are two different functionalities. Search does a name search for an Organization and simply compares the name text and gives all the matching results. In the case of search, a user only has one generic input. However, matching is for a different purpose. Trying to see the closest matching Organization. That involves multiple parameters to compare and rank the closest match for an Organization, Both are different."
