Cause

When the “Edit Primary Raster” option is checked, then the "Stamp operator" for merging the rasters is used.
Since there is only one option to be used as a merge operator in this case, the “Merge Operator” pull down menu is hidden.

Resolution

UPDATED: August 26, 2019
MapInfo Pro Advanced is working as designed.
Note: this issue also applies to the Raster SDK.
