    In save_post hook, to check if the post is published via gutenberg, use this

    add_action( 'block_editor_meta_box_hidden_fields', 'add_gutenberg_hidden_fields', 10, 1 );
    function add_gutenberg_hidden_fields( $post ) {
    	echo '<input type="hidden" name="your-field" value="some-value">';
    	echo '<input type="hidden" name="is_gutenberg_post" value="1">';

    then inside save_post callback, use

    if ( isset( $_POST['is_gutenberg_post'] ) ) {
        // came from gutengerg
