Erm, not quite. The raw-IP having to be dealt with comes from the use of 
TPROXY (or NAT), not TLS. It is used when Squid is deciding whether to 
permit the traffic on the TCP connection to be processed.

Once the TLS is received (by "peek") the TLS SNI (if any) becomes available.

Any of the http_access lines you omitted from the config snippet might 
be letting it through. Order is important, and knowing the whole 
http_access sequence (and more) is just as important to correctly answer 
a question such as this. So take the below with a grain of salt, I am 
assuming nothing else in your config has subtle effects on the 
processing outcome.

There are several things that can lead to it;

* Google servers do have working rDNS. So raw-IP becomes a server 
hostname for dstdomain ACL to match.
  - the rDNS is within *.1e1.net so will not match your list shown, but 
it is enough to possibly evade your IP rules.

* If no provides access control lines match Squid inverted the action on 
the last one and does that.
   - yours are all deny, so the implicit action there is "allow all"

* "ssl_bump peek all" fetches the TLS SNI server name for 
ssl::server_name ACL to match.
  - so by the time Squid gets to processing the AllowTroublesome it 
already knows the client is trying to reach a *.google.com domain.

The rest of your related squid.conf is needed for that, including 
details of the files includes into the ACLs. In particular it is not 
clear what this "unreported error" is or why it happens.
