I am glad to update that this issue was fixed in 23.0.5 release.
Thank you for all the feedback.

I've narrowed down the problem to the fact that Illustrator only works with a xlink:href reference to the path element. If you import this SVG https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/SVG/Element/textPath Illustrator will not put the text on a path, but if you change <textPath xlink:href="#MyPath"> then it will. xlink:href is deprecated in SVG 2.
