ACF registered block not available in full site editor

  • Hello, I am having a problem using a custom ACF block I have registered in my theme’s editor page.

    I have registered the block like this

    add_action( 'acf/init', 'hfm_acf_init_blocks' );
    function hfm_acf_init_blocks() {
    
        if ( function_exists( 'acf_register_block_type' ) ) {
            acf_register_block_type(
                array(
                    'name'            => 'episode-metadata',
                    'title'           => 'Episode',
                    'description'     => 'Spotify/Google Podacast links for an episode/podcast',
                    'render_template' => 'block_templates/episode-metadata.php',
                    'category'        => 'text',
                    'icon'            => 'admin-comments',
                    'api_version'     => 2,
                    'keywords'        => array( 'episodes', 'podcasts' ),
                    'mode'            => 'preview',
                    'supports'        => array(
                        'jsx'        => true,
                        'color'      => array(
                            'text'       => true,
                            'background' => false,
                        ),
                        'align_text' => true,
                    ),
                )
            );
        }
    }

    and in my template file this is the html I am rendering for this block

    <?php
    $align     = isset($block['align_text']) ? $block['align_text'] : 'left';
    $textcolor = isset($block['textColor']) ? $block['textColor'] : 'inherit';
    
    if (substr($textcolor, 0, 1) !== '#' && substr($textcolor, 0, 4) !== 'rgb(') {
        $textcolor = 'var(--wp--preset--color--' . $textcolor . ')';
    }
    ?>
    <div class="podcast-links" style="color: <?php echo $textcolor; ?>; text-align: <?php echo $align; ?>">
    
        <?php
        $spotify_url = get_field('spotify_url', get_the_ID());
        $google_podcast_url = get_field('google_podcast_url', get_the_ID());
    
        ?>
        <?php if ($spotify_url) { ?>
            <div>
                <a href="<?php echo $spotify_url; ?>" target="_blank" class="podcast-url-btn">Spotify</a>
            </div>
        <?php } ?>
    
        <?php if ($google_podcast_url) { ?>
            <div>
                <a href="<?php echo $google_podcast_url; ?>" target="_blank" class="podcast-url-btn">Google Podcasts</a>
            </div>
        <?php } ?>
    </div>

    I can find the registered block and select it while editing a post or a page but not when I am editing a template or a template-part of my theme. What I try to achieve is add the block in my front-page inside a query-loop block. Do you have any idea why the registered block is available only in single post and page editor and not in the rest of my templates?

    I am using Advanced Custom Fields PRO Version 5.9.5 and
    WordPress 6.1.1 running Pentatonic theme.
