Our GNOME maintainer replied already, my translation:

The guy tells that gnome-software doesn't show flatpaks that
can be installed but only those already installed via console.
It's not this way in sisyphus.  I don't know what's up in p10.

Recommend him to try sisyphus-based regular builds, maybe many
of his problems get cured, including attachments in evolution
installed through flatpak (but why not use distribution's one?)

Note that Sisyphus is quite solid for an unstable development
repository but it *can* result in a major PITA or two a year,
in my experience (as in "X broke, need to mess around / fix
or downgrade and hold").  You can try it via LiveCDs though:
