I have reviewed this and verified the behavior reported by @vpalepu.

To recreate this here are few more details: the block editor can be accessed from anywhere, such as the default Gutenburg post editor. When adding the /Navigation block to page, the Navigation Block settings appear on the right side of the screen. From within the block Settings, a metabox "Menu" for selecting the desired menu has a link below it entitled "Manage Menus". This link leads to the Custom Post Types default list screen for the "WP_Navigation" CPT.

This allows you click on the individual available lists, which then list only the title, slug, and post status, as @vpalepu's screen shot showed above.

More than being a bug this seems like a future feature that hasn't been developed yet. Should this not link to the traditional menu editor for the time being?
