in our UserManual and here is small description about the search index.
Actually we use "pipes" that are related to the publishing system and pass the data to the lucene ( there is a SearchManager class in Sitefinity 4.0 . SearchManager has a provider which is LuceneSearchProvider. This provider works with lucene API to create documents - unit of indexing and search.)
