When looking at a filter view, if I have it ordered by rank and move issues around, it appears to have no effect on Rank and snaps back to original order when I hit Search again. Is this expected behavior? (based on what I read from years old answers, only Boards modify rank?)
If so, it is bad UI design to allow people to move them around in a filter as it gives a false sense of functionality.
As you said issue only can be ranked on boards if some requirements are meet, as per documentation says:
To rank an issue:
Navigate to your Scrum backlog, Active sprints, Kanban backlog (if enabled), or Kanban board.

Yeah, here's a bug report on that issue - https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRASERVER-66473
In addition to giving the impression that dragging and dropping updates rank, as you point out, I find that it sometimes makes clicking on an issue to navigate to it difficult.
