   The files that are selected are the matching ones, I think is a good
separation, if user had previously selected files those were deselected
before this matching operation.

  Exactly what the user expects, the file is unselected, I mean, we are
not doing special things here, we only selected and grouped together
some files so the user reached them easily, now the operations the user
perform on those files are his business, he can copy all in a new
folder, or copy only one.

Besides, this way lets you interact with rest of files apart from the
matching ones, I mean, once I have my matching files selected I can scroll
down and append to the selection one file that didnt fit in the search
criteria. You cannot do that with filtering.
