The only examples of the dns-search parameter I can find (besides yours)
are of the sort found in the resolv.conf wiki:  

https://wiki.debian.org/resolv.conf

 With resolvconf installed, you can tell it to do nothing whenever some daemon
 tries to modify resolv.conf, by putting resolvconf=NO in the
 /etc/resolvconf.conf file. (Note: this is not the /etc/resolv.conf file!)

 Alternatively, you can use dns-nameserver entries in the appropriate stanza in
 /etc/network/interfaces:


 iface eth0 inet static
    address 192.168.1.3
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    dns-nameserver 192.168.1.254
    dns-nameserver 8.8.8.8
    dns-search foo.org bar.com
