Another approach we can consider would be to keep only the left border on the more specific item (answering the "where I am?" question), not the category. That would help to distinguish both without adding additional visual structures that could make the menu more complex.

That sounds like a good intermediate step, it needs more thinking with T237781 altogether.

another alternative:

There is also the option of a flat list where all items are exposed within the Components section that would make this issue go away. This could work with or without the sub-section headings (Actions, Selection, Entry, Display).

@alexhollender I saw your comment above too late, the step proposed by @Pginer-WMF made sense to me and has been merged via and deployed.
We need to fix the question on flat vs extra structure level before moving on with further changes.
