How are playlist search results sorted?

When you look up a playlist using a keyword like "night vibes" or "summer music", are the results sorted based on followers, monthly active listeners, relevant title, or...? Sometimes, playlists with a relevant title come up after other playlists that don't exactly match the title.

It's usually related to songs in a playlist, or the name of the playlist.

I wonder about this too, since playlists with tons of followers usually come up first. That makes me think it's based on relevance and popularity. Then I wonder if those playlists got so many followers because it showed up more than other playlists when you search for them? I don't know, really.
