We started experimenting with upgrading those results to https all the time when possible, though the connection to us would still be in HTTP if the HTTPS setting is off. The HTTPS setting was more about forcing our search form submission to be encrypted and therefore protect your search term from man in the middle attacks or ISP snooping.
