It was semi-fixed a couple of years ago for the default Adwaita theme:
"semi-fixed" because it only gives you an "etched in" frame.  But that
is enough for most visual grouping purposes on configuration dialogs,
where I find the issue tends to arise most. Obviously that doesn't help
if you are using an older version of GTK+3.
