On both GLD and X/M32, groups channel sends are only toggles. I think SOF should reflect that, and not show faders. Several times I have thought I was controlling a send, but I was actually changing the house mix.

I don't think so. Look at the channel sends page in X32 edit 3.2. When you configure a send as a sub group, the fader goes away, and there's just a power switch. I'm at a desk in a few hours, I'll check it out and report back.
I know but in mixing station you can still control the send level (which is not used in group mode). The idea is that you know the send level when switching back to a regular send tap. Sometimes sends are still way up and switching back may cause issues.
Ah, I see. I’m at an X32 now, and it behaves the same way. I think it’s confusing, but MSP should probably mimic the desk. Now I need to go back to the GLD and see if it’s doing the same thing. I don’t think it is, though. I think it just leaves the FOH mix on the faders. I think that’s a terrible design.
