did you actully deploy the nova compute agent service to them?

that view is showing the list of host that are running the nova compute service
typically that is not deployed to the contolers.

host in the contol group in the kolla multi node inventlry 
are not use to run the compute agent by default
only nodes in the compute group are
the eception to that is ironic https://github.com/openstack/kolla-ansible/blob/master/ansible/inventory/multinode#L301-L302
which is deployed to the contolers.

the nova compute agent used for libvirt is deployed specificlly to the compute hosts via the  nova-cell role at least on master
this was done a little simpler before adding cell support but the inventory side has not changed in many release in this
