if you set a static home page, so then a page for posts, this page is just a virtual page, because it doesn't have any content, just the title. But, if you search on the site for this title, the virtual page will be shown as search result. In my opinion this should be hidden.

I was able to confirm this. I created a page with the title "customtitle" then added some content to the content area(this would not show if set as posts page). Then I did a search for "customtitle" and it showed in the search results with the excerpt from the content area. This could however be desirable for example if the title was "News" and the content said something like check out all our news articles. Unsure if this is expected or a bug.

I think this is relatively valid point, that perhaps the page set for page_on_front should be excluded from search results.
