Well only update and delete work the way I described wrt a temporary
table. inserts are handled completely differently.

I think that both Envers and Search would need the ids affected + the entity type + the type of the operation (delete, insert, update).

This is a problem also in Envers - where doing bulk operations doesn't cause any historical data to be written in the audit tables. What I normally advise users on the forum is to:
