Are you really seeing the same behavior in all versions?  Because I
thought we changed this pretty significantly in this commit:

    Change plan caching to honor, not resist, changes in search_path.

    In the initial implementation of plan caching, we saved the active
    search_path when a plan was first cached, then reinstalled that path
    anytime we needed to reparse or replan.  The idea of that was to try to
    reselect the same referenced objects, in somewhat the same way that views
    continue to refer to the same objects in the face of schema or name
    changes.  Of course, that analogy doesn't bear close inspection, since
    holding the search_path fixed doesn't cope with object drops or renames.
    Moreover sticking with the old path seems to create more surprises than
    it avoids.  So instead of doing that, consider that the cached plan depends
    on search_path, and force reparse/replan if the active search_path is
    different than it was when we last saved the plan.

    This gets us fairly close to having "transparency" of plan caching, in the
    sense that the cached statement acts the same as if you'd just resubmitted
    the original query text for another execution.  There are still some corner
    cases where this fails though: a new object added in the search path
    schema(s) might capture a reference in the query text, but we'd not realize
    that and force a reparse.  We might try to fix that in the future, but for
    the moment it looks too expensive and complicated.
