Allow Searching in Multiple Choices Columns
We have a list with a "Multiple Choices" column called "Location".
Thus there are list entries with location values like "Berlin, Gray Court".
The item gets indexed in the following style: "Berlin;#Gray Court;#
Unfortunately the search does not return those results when querying for "Berlin".
Only the query "Berlin*" does return all desired results.
Would be nice to see the lingusitic features (word braking) working in such cases!

It is supported now. Use Allow multiple values in Search Schema and then you can use each value as separate refiner.
Allow multiple values:
Allow multiple values of the same type in this managed property. For example, if this is the "author" managed property, and a document has multiple authors, each author name will be stored as a separate value in this managed property.
