GNOME Terminal version 3.32 (more precisely, the underlying VTE version 0.56) addresses this issue, you should no longer see those circles.

A known issue is that the character under the solid block cursor still potentially draws such a circle. This is quite hard to fix (I'm also unsure what the exact desired behavior is). A possible workaround is to switch to I-beam or underline cursor shape.
