In the latter case the letters come from the Basic Latin block of  
Unicode, in the former they are taken from the PUA, the Private Use  
Area, where Junicode, Cardo, Caslon ... encode (or save) their real  
small capitals. To search them enter the Unicode characters U+F766, U 
+F762, and U+F769.

If you want to be able to search small capitals, then use only the  
faulty ones. Or add a CMAP that maps them into the Basic Latin (or  
some other appropriate) block.

         The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated
         than by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere,
         bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
