I actually didn't test it with gedit because I don't want to install
all its Gnome dependencies just to test searching ;-).

But I'm pretty sure Geany already can what you are looking for. In the
search dialog, click on the expander "Find All" and then click on
"Mark" (see http://geany.uvena.de/manual/0.13/images/find_dialog.png
for reference).
This will highlight all matches, not exactly in yellow but in a nice
green ;-).

And with Geany 0.14 (upcoming release) you can also change the used
colour to yellow or whatever you like ;-).
If this matters for you, read the manual at
http://geany.uvena.de/manual/0.14/#special-file-filetypes-common and
look for the "marker_search" setting.
