You rather have the wrong expectations w.r.t. the text you are
attempring to match.

> Found 769 matches for /usr/share/

If you click on one of those results you'll see that the only thing this
matches are symlink targets.  The actual file paths don't start with a
slash (they are relative to /) and they are not the beginning of a line
either.
