A behavior I've found quite helpful from ESRI is the "Search Distance" function while performing a Select by Location. Granted, something similar can be fudged by buffering the selection layer by whatever units prior to using it against the features layer, but having this built into the selection tool can save a number of steps.

Select by Location to have an optional Search Distance feature.
Search Distance feature to support arbitrary/defined units (not only units in layer/project CRSs).

Should have shown the number of selected features to be 1733, instead of 2394 like ArcGIS Desktop/Pro.
