Consider this scenario:

 

You have a modern SharePoint 365 site with a limited number of people with your organisation having direct access permissions to it.

Bob does not have direct access to the site.

You share a file in a document library to Bob, by sharing the file with Bob as a specific named person.  

When Bob uses the modern SharePoint 365 search (one which searches all the sites in an organisation), does the above file you have shared with Bob show up in his results?
