Summary: Both "Settings..." button and the key word searched in "about:preferences#containers" are highlighted → Hide about:preferences#containers panel in search result
Whiteboard: [photon-preference][triage] → [photon-preference]
Per discussion with UX designer, we're going to hide container panel from search result but only display the tooltip on top of the "Settings..." button instead. (Please see expected result as attached screenshot)

In other words, text content inside container panel won't be highlighted anymore since clicking container's "Settings..." button will leave the search result and no highlight is necessary.
Added data-hidden-from-search="true" in container panel for hiding itself from search result but introduced a new data-subpanel="true" attribute for being able to display container panel on preferences panel.

I just noticed that this has the same ID as the checkbox groupbox. Please change this ID to "browserContainersGroupPane" and make sure that changing the name doesn't break any JS.
