Subcomponents cannot see external annotations

When I make the icon of the parent component and apply its sub components to the interface, the parent component can see the complete blank border, but the sub component cannot see the external blank border. See the recording screen for details

This is a known issue. You can hold Cmd/Ctrl to select the top-level layers first instead of directly selecting all nested ones. There are no ways to prevent it but you can see some other workarounds in this thread: Prevent viewers from selecting content of an icon frame
