By design, the letters in hexadecimal codes are not case sensitive as you know.

On MikroTik router, it's automatically converted into capitals for easy identification especially when reading scripts. I think.

I think the "where" search widget is case sensitive in nature, and it doesn't realize that you're searching for MAC addresses.
