This is working as designed.

This behavior is controlled by the following piece of code in list_kd.htmpl page,
the Federated Search should not be used unless one of the following is true,

"$args.KEEP.search_type" == "ticket"
"$args.KEEP.search_type" == "SearchTools"
"$args.KEEP.search_type" == "FAQ"
"$args.KEEP.GoBtnRole" == "1"

and when the page is brought up from Quick Profile the $args.KEEP.search_type is set to KEYWORDS. Which is expected.

You can open an Idea in our Service Desk Forum in CA Communities in order to request a different behavior to be considered in future releases.
