Turnitin limitations

I have noticed on a few student assignments this semester that Turnitin is not flagging plagiarized passages. I usually recognize these because the language is particularly sophisticated or advanced, and a quick Google search will confirm that, indeed, the student has lifted text directly from a website. Does anyone know why Turnitin is missing these and/or whether there is work being done to improve the functioning of this feature?
