It is not being offered as an optional component during installation
on Windows. It seems to be installed as part of another
component. Maybe Base? Also, it is still displayed as a bundled
extension in the extension manager (only on Windows, not on
GNU/Linux), but all in low case and without any additional information
(descriptive blurb, version number, provider).

I don't have a clue on how to fix that.

The GNU/Linux deb packages have a separate
libobasis3.5-postgresql-sdbc package -> properly optional.
