Welcome and thanks for the report!

Yes, .entry-content .wp-block-button__link overrides the gradient backgrounds from the editor stylesheet (when the block is in the post content).

r44200 switched the background and text color styles from .wp-block-button .wp-block-button__link to .entry-content .wp-block-button__link within blocks.css.

I think reducing that selector to .wp-block-button__link might be better.
