I guess the one below can't be (see below).

You seemed to have overlooked the empty line above the ']);' in the
original patch. So, your minimized version isn't actually equivalent to
the original one. Further, when trying to recreate your patch I get the
following,

diff --git a/diff-test b/diff-test
index 1d5dc1b..f3ec38f 100644
--- a/diff-test
+++ b/diff-test
@@ -1,10 +1,8 @@
         address    =>  { -like => \[ '?',  "%$search%" ] },
         company    =>  { -like => \[ '?',  "%$search%" ] },
         country_code =>  { '=' => \[ 'UPPER(?)' => $search ] },
+
     ]);
 
-    $users =  $users->search( $filter, {
-        prefetch => { Packages => { Ips => { Subnet => { Server => 'Locality' }}}},
-    });
 
     return $users;

I use git built from the source (2.15.0.531.g2ccb3012c)
