I see that most of the famous CMP like Cookiebot are not showing when a website is scanned using Google PageSpeed or Lighthouse.

Is this behaviour allowed by Google? It's not cloaking?

In CookieBot documentation for example, they say that:

Note: In order for you to test the performance of your site, we don’t display the consent banner on all Google tools. Otherwise, during a test, the banner would show on every page of your site, (as the tools cannot provide consent) rather than just once - as in a real-life scenario. This would not give an accurate representation of performance. To allow for testing of your pages with our consent banner, we have enabled a query parameter that you attach to the end of your site URL that will automatically display the banner for any of your pages. The query parameter is called g_disable_bot_detection and you assign that a value of 1.
