As per my test on many farms with different SharePoint versions, I can find the Publishing Site with Workflow Template listed in the Publishing tab without no issue!
However, to avoid such behavior, you can create a Publishing Site with Workflow using Powershell as the following:

Create a Publishing Site with Workflow using PowerShell in SharePoint 2019

  1. Open SharePoint Management Shell as Administrator.
  2. Run the below cmdlet to create a Publishing Site with Workflow using this site template code BLANKINTERNET#2 as below

     New-SPSite https://webApp/sites/test -OwnerAlias "DOMAIN\melqassas" -Language 1033 -Template BLANKINTERNET#2
    

Check also New-SPSite
