I made a gradient in a layer in Gimp, then moved onto other things. Can I return to the mode like when I was editing the gradient and I was modifying the control points inside the image canvas? Or once I leave the gradient it becomes permanent?

    No. Gradients are not editable once applied. Instead, put the gradient fill on a new layer. That way if you need to change it you can delete the layer, make a new one, and apply another gradient. – Billy Kerr Apr 12 '20 at 9:01

Once the gradient has been rendered and you leave the Blend tool the gradient becomes permanent.

The last gradient you used/edited in the Blend tool in the current editing session is saved under the name Custom (and is the first gradient in the list).
