Comment (by progmastery):

 Thanks @gibrown. Do you fix sync errors case by case?

 Perhaps these are another cases: "form" [https://wordpress.org/plugins-
 wp/search/form/] or "forms" https://wordpress.org/plugins-

 A number of popular (>200k) form plugins are missing from the results,
 e.g. "Fast Secure Contact Form" and "Formidable Forms".

 A search for "google map" [https://wordpress.org/plugins-
 wp/search/google+map/]. It is difficult to understand why "Google Map" and
 "WP Google Map Plugin" are lower than "WP Store Locator". "WordPress
 Google Maps Plugin" with 40k+ installs is missing from first and second
 pages of search results, also it is missing from [https://wordpress.org
 /plugins-wp/search/google+maps/] search. Also perhaps there is an issue
 with weighting precise search terms in multi-word query, because it is
 difficult to explain why "Google Analytics Dashboard for WP" has so high
 position in the results. Please take a look at its readme file

 p.s. I could not find elastic search index code, or the one responsible
 for syncing between .org main and secondary databases. Is it publicly
