Having gone through some of the older forum posts and it seems that the keyword exact() in L3 is being replaced by unticking "Match all word forms" in the L4 search panel. However, when I tried to search exactly the word עֹז (with holem on the ayin) in AFAT, L4 always return 53 hits with all sorts of עז. Result does not differ whether you tick the match all word forms or not.  It seems that I cannot tell L4 to search exactly a hebrew word with specific vowel points. In L3 exact(עֹז) returns 34 hits.

Therefore I tried some even more non-sense search in L4, such as a non-existent דֻבֻר, and again L4 ignores the two qibbus and return all words of דבר. As I am new to Logos, am I missing something or is it really a bug? Or is it just something like a new design in L4?

Logos 4 doesn't do Hebrew searching very well right now. It's slated to be fixed in 4.0b which should hit beta soon.

Seems it is still not fixed in beta 7. Unticked "Match all word forms".

I don't believe the forum has a forum moderator in this sense. Because Melissa has picked this up, don't worry about this particular thread's location.
