I tested and yes the AppMenu doesn't show for apps run as root.

As I posted before, you can force apps run under gnome-shell to show
all their menus in their own windows and not rely on AppMenu by
running this command as user in terminal:

gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.xsettings overrides
"{'Gtk/ShellShowsAppMenu': <0>}"

(or by using dconf-editor).
