What you want is very hard to implement in Org mode for all the backends
- the export API, when querying a link target, returns that target as
AST element. Individual backends then decide what to do with that target
in order to extract the actual exported link text. And we have no
control over the third-party export backends.

What you may do instead is to create a custom element in
`org-export-filter-parse-tree-functions' that will force description in
the fuzzy links.
