Is there a way to include settings_data.json values in search results?

I am working in a store that has an FAQ section. The previous developer set this up for the merchant to add new questions/responses to FAQ through a custom section. This was a clever implementation, but not helpful in that it doesn't seem that the values are available through the standard Shopify search form. Now that their FAQ has grown, they want to implement the capability for search to make this easier on users. 

From my review, settings_data.json values would not be exposed/available through search as only Products, Pages, and Articles are available as results based on docs I reviewed: Anyone have any suggestions other than getting clever with Javascript or re-writing the FAQ section?
