Perhaps fscrawler and Elasticsearch need some customization that the wiki doesn’t mention. There also seems to be a difference in using the main search box in the Finder window or the more granular options below, even if using the same search criteria and feature, like searching by file type. I managed to crash Samba 4.12.6 a few times also when searching by file name.

If you crashed Samba can you log a bug and
attach the backtrace please ?

We should never crash due to client actions.
