Is the access of elements within a stream given a key indexed in any way?

In the worse case, would we need to scan through all the elements of a stream to find the relevant item?

Yes, it's completely indexed. All the stream retrieval APIs have proper indexes supporting them, and they never do some kind of full scan.
