When using record boost/bury with 11.1 Assembler, there is a difference in how the boost/bury query is built compared to how it was built in 2.1.x Experience Manager Extensions.  In Assembler queries, the search interface is not added to the end of the boost/bury stratify expression (the end of the '+rel' parameter). 2.1 query format desired because after "boosted products", "buried products" the "rest of products" are ordered by the relevance ranking strategy that is part of the specified search interface.  Since the search interface is not part of the 11.1 query, the remaining "rest of products" are not ordered per the relevance ranking strategy.

Here are example queries showing the difference in "rel" parameters and the search interface, where the "All" interface is not at the end in 11.1:

Query 2 using boost/bury in exp mgr 11.1:
