    Victory! I found the solution at the end of a post. As you can see if you use MS Troubleshooter for the indexing, it will say that it lack write access to OneDrive's directory. It looks like the problem is OneDrive getting its directory as readonly (apparently this goes along with the "files on demand" feature).

    So here is how you can include OneDrive in your index for Windows Search:
    1. Disable "Files on demand" in Onedrive settings
    2. In the index settings OneDrive should now appear:
    2a. Open the Index Settings app
    2b. Click on Modify
    2c. Look for your OneDrive directory (usually looks like C:\Users\JohnDoe\OneDrive)
    2d. Make sure it is ticked and save
    3. Wait until the index update is over (rebuild index if necessary)
    4. Enjoy having an index that works with OneDrive!
