If this has not been done yet and it is possible, would there be any way the option to block an element could be removed for Google's website in this case? If it is whitelisted, it would be better not to display that function in order not to mislead the user as it will not work.

Yes, this element cannot be blocked because it is whitelisted. Hence it cannot be selected. Though if there would be any ancestor that can be blocked, it would be selected instead. But this isn't the case here.

What you experience here is the same behavior you get with any element that cannot be blocked for whatever reason. However, if the whole page is whitelisted the "Block Element" option is already removed, but this isn't the case here either.
