Thanks for checking, that's helpful!

In fact, I am using routing instances. Like you, I can get add-path
send/receive outside a routing instance, but inside, add-path is
hidden. I assumed this was independent of the routing instance
(configured type virtual-router), so I didn't bother to check that.

Does "set routing-instances rr1 protocols bgp group apath family inet
unicast add-path ..." complete for you?
