It’s an implementation detail. Some of these drop-downs are implemented using .ui GtkBuilder files, and are coded in such a way that allows you to drag them out of their button and use them as floating windows. Your window manager is responsible of drawing their borders. In some cases, if you disable desktop composition, they may show as in the screenshot you posted. You just need to fiddle in your DE’s settings to change this behavior.
