Correct, the search results are (in theory) possible to customize 
however we want.

Though I am not sure what problem we are trying to solve here.

Was the problem with a trailing space in the replace text field? Or 
possible two spaces when only one was desired?

Would you want the “Show Invisibles” limited to only the 
match/replacement string (in the search results)? As I assume if we 
render all invisibles, it’ll look rather busy.

As mentioned earlier, the current nightlies have a background color for 
the match/replacement, I’ve attached a capture where I put 3 trailing 
spaces in the replace field. To be honest, I am not sure rendering them 
as dots in the search results would make it that much clearer, that 
there is too much space (but then, I also use a monospaced font for 
search results).
