   incremental and non-incremental history searches.

Because it sets the region, and when bracketed paste mode is enabled, the
new active region feature is enabled.

Yes, you can disable bracketed paste mode. I'll make sure that turning off
bracketed paste mode disables the active region for incremental searches.
