The mention feature rely on Confluence's index. If we have a malformed index, we can have problems trying to find users when we use such feature. This problem usually happens after an upgrade or a Confluence that is running for a long time. To fix the problem, we need to do a rebuild of content indexes from scratch.
I hope this helps.
