Shapebuilder not picking color from artwork

I've been using the shapebuilder tool to clean up my artwork and suddenly it can't pick the color from the artwork correctly anymore. I had been using it with objects that have a gradient but until now it had no problem with that. When I combine shapes with it it simply turns the shapes black, though the fill color has a "?" in the properties panel.

 

If I choose "pick color from color swatches" then that works just fine.

 

I tried resetting the options for the shapebuilder tool and restarting Illustrator but the problem persists.

 

If anyone has any clue, please let me know.

Thanks

Which version of Illustrator are you using and on which OS? I just tried combining shapes with different gradient fills with "Pick color from artwork" selected, and it worked for me. I'm using Illustrator 24.3 on Windows 10.
