Incorrect/Unexpected Behavior

Please describe the issue and what steps we can take to reproduce it:

A new `UIFindInteraction` instance does not clear the search textfield associated with it. 

Steps to reproduce:

1. In a Navigation Stack app, push a view controller that has a searchable document and UIFindInteraction implemented. 
2. Open the view controller with the associated UIFindInteraction.
3. Trigger the find interaction and search in the document. 
4. Tap on done (on the find interaction accessory toolbar presented by the UIFindInteraction)
5. Dismiss the view controller by swiping or tapping on the back button. 
6. Present the view controller again. 
7. Trigger the find interaction. The search field has the text from the previous interaction intact. 

Expected Result:

Every UIFindInteraction instance should have its own internal cache of the search field text instead of a global shared instance for the app.



Please find a sample project attached to this response which reproduces the behaviour. Additional comments and exact steps to reproduce are mentioned in the README.md file.
