Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)
If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer

configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
Yes. and they have been attached
Have you tried using all of Dolphin's graphical settings? It might be worth testing everything and seeing if they rely on some kind of feature to render. I also wonder if this is an information issue.
Turns out you are correct.
the Embedded Frame Buffer was the cause of the issue (store EFB Copies to Texture Only). disabling it shows the flags.
