Note that there is no option in Chrome settings to disable linking or opening web content in other installed apps. This is by design. The idea is to create seamless transitions from Chrome to other apps for better user experience.

Instead of posting my own answer, I will take the freedom to update your answer to better address this question. I hope you don't mind. You were on the right track with this issue from the beginning. So I want to give credit to you.

Update 2! There you have it folks. This issue has been resolved through updates of the Chrome browser.

@RossC No, I was not using Google Search app (I have it installed though). I used Chrome omnibar to do the search.

@RossC It says "No defaults set". So there's nothing to clear, the button "Clear defaults" is grayed out for Chrome. What then?

I have installed the Wikipedia app again, and the Google Search results appear as normal in it. In other words, the links to Wikipedia articles don't link to the Wikipedia app. Not even when the Wikipedia app is in fact installed! So this is definitely just Chrome browser goofing about.

That sounds about right. But unfortunately, I don't have that option. I do have "Default applications" option in the menu. But in there, I only have "Home" (set to TouchWiz home) and "Message" (set to Messages). That's it. No option for Wikipedia links or app.
