Synced patterns would be able to be inserted by clicking on the Synced Patterns icon on the far right side of the tab.

However, I agree that it is a pattern with or without synchronization and therefore it should appear on the Patterns tab.

I have submitted the issue as I believe this is a Gutenberg project related issue:
