This shows up in Nominatim searches for "Doctor Martin Luther King Junior Avenue Northeast", the name of the street.

This doesn't show up in searches for "Doctor Martin Luther King Jr Avenue Northeast", the same name with "Junior" abbreviated to Jr.

Fixing the abbreviation issue is more of a long term project because it requires some fundamental changes to the database that are not backwards compatible. At the moment possible abbreviations are collected here in the wiki. Junior is already in this list, so closing the issue here for now.
