Is it possible to select all objects that are linked from a certain file?

Hi all,
I have lots of linked files in my current scene. The more I link files it becomes harder to detect objects in which file I linked from.
So, is it possible to select all objects that are linked from a certain file?

I tried right clicking my linked files in outliner (Blend File display mode) but it has no option to select linked objects like materials has.

It does not have such option because an object is not a data of an object.
An object is an object.
There is no Select Linked item in right click menu for objects.
But there is a Select item.

In Blend File view, you have to expand library hierarchy, expand objects section, box select all object items and use right click menu -> Select.
It is a pity that synchronization is not working for this view.
2.8 is still fresh. There is room to improve outliner.

Do you think I should report this as a bug? (May it be a “known issue”?)

That is not a bug because it never worked as is.
That is a design issue or a todo.
I think that place to address design issue is rather devtalk.blender.org

I see, thank you for the response.

I created a feedback topic in devtalk:
