For example do a find references on the Spawn member function of any of the ParticleModule classes and you will get results like what is shown in the picture below:

I am seeing the same problem here.

Is it ever going to be useful to have Find References search inside the UPROPERTY macros? What about other macros that take parameters? Or if you wanted to find all of the "Category=Spawn" lines would a simple find in files for this literal string be good enough?

I am wondering if we should be keeping these results, but able to filter them out in the Find References Results list, or to just ignore the UPROPERTY and other macro lines entirely when doing a search.

UPROPERTY macro is just meta data stuff, I don't see why find references would look at it.

That makes sense, I just wanted to check there wasn't some good reason why you would want VA to be searching inside the U* macros. I have put in a bug report for these macros being searched, since it does seem wrong:
