So what is the connection between the contradicting numeric search queries and unsafe search results?

This could be as simple as mismatched logic between the safe search and unsafe search logic.

Consider a Google software engineer fixes this bug directly or indirectly in the safe search section of the code months/years ago, which invariably gets more attention than others. The same fix isn't applied to the unsafe beach in the code, maybe an omission, maybe time/resource constraints, who knows.
 
Interesting story! Thanks for the share.
