G appears when global attenuation is off for all objects/searches.

Using the Attenuator
The attenuator reduces the amount of signal at the receiver input (20 dB) and may help reduce interference from strong nearby transmitters. There are two attenuation modes, Normal and Global. Normal attenuation uses the attenuation settings for each object or search. Global attenuation forces attenuation for all objects, on or off
To Attenuate a Conventional Object press ATT anytime a conventional object is in the display.
To Attenuate a Trunking System press ATT anytime a talkgroup object is in the display.
To Attenuate a Search Object or Dedicated Search press ATT during the search.

To Turn Global Attenuation Mode Off press FUNC then ATT (no G in the display).
To Turn Global Attenuation Mode On press FUNC then ATT (G in the display).
To Turn Global Attenuation On press ATT (GA in the display).
To Turn Global Attenuation Off press ATT (G in the display).

I think the o.p. Might understand it since his post was deleted.

When actual Global attenuation is on - lessening the signals by 20db across everything the scanner can pick up is when the letters GA show, not just the G by itself.

Key word in the explanation is 'Mode', just makes it ready for 'Global' attenuation if needed.

Personally if someone asks my help programming I do a FUNC ATT to turn off the G since with the G on, too easy for someone to accidentally push the ATT button that would kill reception with the attenuation actually on. Then someone would ask why there radio is not picking anything up?
