When you create a block in Facets and save it, it's not immediately visible in the blocks section of Drupal.
After clearing the cache, it becomes visible.

Proposed resolution

After saving the facet, clear the caches.

The patch you suggested is way too aggressive, we should only clear cache for the relevant cache tags and use Cache::invalidateTags(); instead.

Now making use of the plugin.manager.block service to clear only the block caches.
