What I ended up doing is extending “acf_field_relationship” with my own classname “acf_field_relationship_nogroup”. A few things needed to be customized, and I needed to register the new control in jQuery as well. It seems to be working well.
Seems like not grouping the results by post type should be an option for Relationship fields though.
