Searching for component instance in a view-only file

I am a manager of the design system library in my org and I am trying to find instances of components in other designer files via the Org Libraries options, to see how components are being used. Clicking on a component takes me to the design file, but it doesn’t link to the frame where the component is used, which is what I would expect (even if it’s used in multiple instances, I would want to see at least one of them).
So I have to manually search for the component between dozens of pages and frames. There is a Instance finder plugin but plugins don’t work in read-only files. Is there a way around this? Is Figma planning on releasing an update on this?
