Currently giving Gutenberg another go (instead of Flexible Content taking over the old editor) and this still is an issue.
Unfortunately the only real solution is just to force the mode => ‘edit’ and just have people edit in the main editor instead of the sidebar. Kinda defeats the purpose of Gutenberg, but at least it’s more native than Flexible Content blocks.
