AHA! Found 'em! Thanks!
Doing a bookmark search in "Bookmarks Manager" (via
"Organize Bookmarks") came up blank earlier. But,
after reading your post, I manually looked through
all bookmarks in "Bookmarks Manager" and found them.
Would be nice if "Bookmarks Manager" search processed everything
[all names (including folders) as well as locations].
