Bug Description

After upgrading Calibre to 2.82 and uploading a series of books, I have noticed an annoying bug when downloading metadata for those books. Namely, when downloading metadata from some (though not all) sources, the text in the "Comments" section (description of the book) has words from title and author name and surname (which are probably search query) in bold. For example for newly added (without ISBN) book "Unexpected Stories" by Octavia E. Butler the words in bold (using the "strong" tag) were "unexpected", "stories", "Octavia" and "Butler" (but not "E."...).

Sometimes downloading metadata second time helps - I suspect that is the case when search is performed using ISBN, and there are no search terms in Comments section then.

It is more annoying than a real bug, in that it requires to go through comments and correct the formatting, but not a very serious bug.
