I suspect the answer would have been the same even if the
request had been worded "Does the MoD hold any documents
classified Top Secret or above that mention UFOs/UAPs", or had
used any of the terms you mention.

The one exception is probably "unknown aircraft", though I doubt
any documents adjudged to be covered by a request using this
term relate to UFOs. Anybody (not just UK citizens or residents)
may make applications under our FOIA, so you're free to have a
go yourself.

Best wishes,
