I am happy to share that we have fixed this bug in our latest release – 24.3.0 which is available worldwide now.
Going forward, our goal is to fix as many top User-Voice bugs as possible and as frequently as possible. Given the nature of the fixes, some of the bugs will take a longer time to fix, but we are on it.
You can update to the latest release using Creative Cloud desktop App: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/creative-cloud/help/creative-cloud-updates.html

In response to Adobe:
Thanks for looking at this. I do believe it would best to have the annotator tool visible no matter if the object is a group, compound or other, especially if you need to adjust the gradient across of a bunch of objects in one group.
Thanks for sharing information with us , Illustrator team really appreciate this.
On looking your file I observed the group does not show gradient annotator but you can go inside the group via double click get into isolation mode .
In Isolation Mode we are able to see gradient annotator on Compound Path.
Can you kindly check does this workaround resolves your problem.
With Best Regards
