If it's matching against a fixed list of patterns, then the important
thing is that list, not the algorithm used to search it; and two systems
using the same list of patterns would generate the same results even if
they used different search algorithms.  Are you suggesting that LuaTeX's
search is only approximate, and it doesn't find some matching patterns, or
reports that some patterns match when they do not?  That's not the meaning
I get from the sentence you quote.
