Ok, I wasn't testing with {{!}} template.

{{PAGENAME}} works by default in the sidebar, but not in the sidebar titles.

If you had:
*Search for this page
** http://example.net/{{PAGENAMEE}} | Link

you can add in [[MediaWiki:Common.css]]
#p-Search_for_this_page { display: none }
.ns-0 #p-Search_for_this_page { display: block }
