in fact the wiki page is not enough in your case.
When you add a new authority type you need also to personalize also the 
routine in BuildSummary in C4/AuthoritiesMarc.pm.
If you don't do this on search result you see only subfield $a, that is 
the default of the routine 'BuildSummary'.

Now I will update the wiki page.
