Erratically. And they hogged so much CPU I never used them.

In 4.8/4.9 I think problems with the quality of the data in the search index 
was the problem with searches, which was why deleting the akonadi cache and 
letting it reindex was a common solution.

I can't remember if it was in 4.9, but in  4.10 in individual folder 
properties there is a maintanance tab with a "Force reindexing" option. When I 
was testing "Search for unread" status I had a few messages obviously indexed 
with the wrong status. I forced a reindex and it.

a. Worked

b. CPU usage did rise, but only to 30% of a core

c. Completed very quickly

I have 12,000+ msgs in my inbox, it only took a minute.

However the folder properties dialog is *very* slow to appear, I suspect its 
querying  my imap server first. Maybe it would be quicker for a POP setup.

Very encouraged so far.
