Gutenberg doesn't respond is_admin on firing save_post action

I'm the developer of a plugin that use the action save_post inside a is_admin() condition. It's working since the first version but if I activate Gutenberg doesn't work anymore, it begin working if I move the add_action outside the is_admin condition.

Since this is a different behavior than before and I also see that on forums there are people asking why save_post doesn't work on Gutenberg (this is not true), I suppose this could be a bug.

There's a WP_Screen::is_block_editor() method that might be helpful:

global $current_screen;
$is_block_editor = ( $current_screen instanceof WP_Screen ) && $current_screen->is_block_editor();

The block editor is using the REST API to get and save data, including posts. So you either have to check for a REST request or remove the condition altogether.
