Any insight from the Skia team as to why this might be happening?

We have been making some changes in the gradient code, let's start with Florin
No idea what might be causing these artifacts.

I can repro as far back as 345568 (M47 days), and other/older binaries are no longer supported on new Android devices.

So not a (recent) regression AFAICT.

Assigning to Skia, as the problem almost certainly is there.
