It’s an API limitation. If no node is within the bbox the API has no way of knowing there should be something there. I don’t believe there is a different workaround from the one you already suggest yourself, but I would be happy to be wrong (as I too find this an unfortunate limitation).

This can result in collecting the same data a second time because the first instance is not returned.
