Or if you don't mind installing a 30-day trial, the professional version of Agent Ransack can search through various files (including ePub, but not mobi or azw3) so you can try searching for a text string.
That assumes you retain the file after adding it to calibre; I for one don't.

The advent of TdeM's GFN meant I could stop copying and pasting the full path of the file I added into my #came_from column when I add a book.

I only use search tools to search file contents - mainly Windows Search (including EPUBs), sometimes X1 or File Locator or for simple stuff a 2014 edition of xplorer² file manager.

You can use find with the -exec flag to grep for a string. The program https://github.com/phiresky/ripgrep-all can search pdfs, epubs, office documents and other media types.

In short: use find to search for containers/mimes on certain modified dates and exec rga to find a given string for each file match.

I actually download ePubs right into a Calibre autoimport folder. Saves a few clicks.
