According to this post https://community.shopify.com/c/Shopify-Design/Partial-Word-Search-Feature/td-p/471213 partial word match is partially supported because there has to be an asterisk in the query string. 

While it is impossible to educate my clients to add asterisk themselves, using Javascript to add it might be a good idea.

 

But it seems to me there is a better solution because one of the basic theme "debut" has this feature. And from the query string in URL you can tell it is not using the javascript to add asterisk because there is no asterisk in the URL. So how does "debut" achieve this? I read the theme files but couldn't find an answer.

Check the form itself, and the actual network request not just the query url shown in the browser
