The default condition for ^!Find is to select the found text.
Using the Find/Replace dialog, afaik, you have no option,
however, using a clip, the ^!Find command, and ^!Jump commands
below, from help, you can mimic the WordPerfect action.
Use ^!Find followed by ^!Jump SELECT_START, to clear highlighted
text and move the cursor to the beginning of found text.
Use ^!Find followed by ^!Jump SELECT_END, to clear highlighted
text and move the cursor to the end of found text.
Moves cursor to the indicated position. If the parameter is a
number without a sign (+/-), the command will treat it as the
line position from the start of the document. When a sign is
used, the command will move the cursor a relative number of lines
from the current position; a positive number moving it towards
the end of the text and a negative number towards the start. If
you don't specify a line number, you can use one of the following
LINE_START or LINE_END: places cursor at the beginning or end of
the current line. This feature treats a line as if word wrap is
SELECT_START or SELECT_END: places cursor at the beginning or end
of the selection and unselects the text.
TEXT_START or TEXT_END: moves to start or end of a plain document
or the content of an Outline heading.
DOC_START or DOC_END: moves to start or end of any kind of document.
