I still think the space before "figure" is far more important than  
examination of things afterward. I would guess that he wants to find  
things like your "see figure~\ref{fig:blah}" which will be found by  
only searching for white space before "figure." I particularly think  
that avoiding the search after "figure" would be important so you can  
find things like "figures" and "figure," and "figure." and "figure;"  
and "figure'" and more. There are very few marks that can show up  
adjacent to and preceding "figure" in standard English; there are  
more and more frequently used ones that show up afterward.

Could you do [\s"'(] or something like that prior to figure? I don't  
know the limits of regular expressions.
