Empty search field: different behavior in Advanced and Saved searches

When trying to search for untagged items before reading any docs, I tried this in Advanced Search, and it worked:
Tag -- does not contain -- <empty_field>
I then put the same settings into a Save Search, and it returned no items. (The first trial was in Juris-M 5.0; I then installed Zotero 5.0, and it similarly succeeded in one mode, but failed in the other.)

On the forums, I learned that % can be used as a wildcard, so I'm all set for the search I was after.

It seems like the empty-field search should fail in both modes, though, to avoid misunderstanding by jump-in-at-the-deep-end users like myself.
