Ubuntu Gnome is setup only for Wayland. Raspbian is setup for X11 by default. What is your use case?

Does the new Bullseye image address the issue of SSH not being enabled during initial setup?

SSH is not enabled unless you have an empty file named ssh in the first FAT partition. This should already work on the current images.
