Short description of error
See example file -

Bone.001 does not inherit rotation. so if rotation order set as e.g. XYZ when you rotate X-axis your Y-axis and its Gizmo should keep its vertical direction even when you rotate root bone but it does not. Gizmo on the bone.001 inherit direction of the root bone which seems to be wrong . Meanwhile in graph editor X rotation f-curve of Bone.001 is straight as it should to be.

If you have a more specific setup you are welcome to post a blend file.

@William Reynish (billreynish) Sure. here it is

Probably your transform orientation was not Gimbal. Here is another gif -

With @Stanislav Ovcharov (Stan1)'s file, it doesn't matter which transform orientation is chosen (at least it doesn't matter on my machine), they all show the gizmo in the same (incorrect) orientation.

Adding the User Interface project to get some help with the gizmos.
