If you could create a reproducer that would be great.

I think the issue is that the build-id searches simply skip relative
directories. Specifically this in libdwfl/dwfl_build_id_find_elf.c:

      /* Only absolute directory names are useful to us.  */ 
      if (dir[0] != '/') 

While for find-debuginfo.c we have:

          /* A relative path says to try a subdirectory of that name 
             in the main file's directory.  */ 

I believe the idea is that lookups by build-id can be done without having a
(main) file. While file based lookup always starts with a (main) file, and
relative paths can be resolved based on the main file directory.

It might make sense to try build-id lookups using the same relative path logic
if we do have a (main) file to start with.

BTW. How did you end up with this setup?
Is there a development tool that creates a structure like that?
