I'm running Joomla(3.9.8) on an Apache/PHP server on Linux.

If you touch a file as the server user (and from PHP running on the server), the permissions of that file are: -rw-rw-r--.

However, if a file is uploaded via the Media Manager (and JCE File Browser), the permissions look like this: -rw-r--r--. The server thread has Umask: 0022.

Where is g+w lost and more importantly is there a setting to add g+w for uploads (or set permissions for uploads in general)?

I could overwrite with inotify cron, but that would be the last resort.
