It's intentional that slime-isearch can move to a different defun.

The snippet is intended for the case when the buffer position of the
source location is stale e.g. because the user inserted a new defun
before that position.  The CMUCL swank records the source string for
functions compiled with C-c C-c and the snippet is extracted from that

The :call-site hint is intended for implementations which only record
the beginning of functions and not the source locations inside

None of our backends uses the :snippet and :call-site hints at the
same time.
