Thank you for your answer! The default behavior when you search from a site, is that you get results from that site. You can change the scope to be all of SharePoint by clicking the SharePoint link that’s directly above the search box on the search results page. After changing the scope you’ll also see results from your on-premises content that has been pushed to the Office 365 index.
We’re thinking about whether this default behavior should be different, and are interested in hearing what people think about this.

    I think there are two things here. The Site Admin should be able to choose whether site search defaults to the Site, the hub, or even the tenancy. There also needs to be some provision to set a result source which doesn't seem to work against the modern experience. This would mean that certain results could be excluded when a user does an Organisation search. For example, only staff could be returned in the results search.

    Yes, we have tenant/search site center page in office 365 which is getting all results from eneterprise & on prem content is pushed using Cloud SSA.
    Modern site cannot search that content while in classic site we were able to modify the content to get the results out
