Adjust 1042 Gross on Deduction does not work correctly with Taxable Gross Component ID

We have an employee who is a Non-resident alien who is on treaty and has not yet reached his treaty limit.

He receives a check that includes before-tax deductions (with no taxable gross component ID), before tax deductions (with a taxable gross component ID), and a taxable benefit.

The taxable gross component ID adds to State (MA) taxable gross.

When the employee is paid, he incorrectly receives a MA (W-2) Withholding taxable gross of $278.15. This corresponds to his retirement deductions (ORPT64 and RTTIA2) which have a taxable gross component ID = STATE. This should instead have added to his 1042 taxable gross.

This causes reconciliation issues -- now the employee has an incorrect W-2 taxable gross.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Navigate to "Set Up HCM>Product Related>Payroll for North America>Federal/State Taxes>Taxable Gross Definition Table" and indicate for the State "MA" a taxable gross component as "STATE" for Withholding. It adds to gross.
2. Setup a before tax general deduction that has "STATE" associated for the taxable gross component id and indicate "Adj 1042 Gross"
3. Setup the employee as a Non Resident Alien
4. Enroll him into that general deduction
5. Create a paysheets and run a payroll calculation
6. Review paycheck taxes shows a taxable gross for withholding for the deduction code that had the taxable gross component id "STATE" instead of the 1042 taxable gross.
