I was about to file a bug report and my search led me to #7764 and then here.
In the layout Image Item properties, Search directories, the drop-down list of folders really looks like a filter for the image preview (despite the label).
And I think it should apply a filter (and it can also serve the Remove button purpose at the same occasion): showing the whole list of images when you are looking for few (and know where they are) is not a nice UX imho.
