I don’t see Azul on SDKMan but I do see the Java feature from zulu.org ,so that is what you mean right ? thanks

In fact many IaaS platforms can only run OpenJDK due to licensing - so if you're running Grails on AWS Elastic Beanstalk you're already using OpenJDK (which we do).
Since AWS uses OpenJDK I've been using Azul on my Mac (via sdkman) for quite some time and have not noticed any incompatibilities or differences when running Grails or other small groovy apps/scripts.
With Oracle's new release cadence and no overlapping support timelines - I don't see how any non-oracle-paying java users could use anything but OpenJDK. For me I don't want to spend time upgrading my JDK - would rather ship customers features :)
Just my 2c & experience,-Eric
PS: Maybe worth reaching out to Azul and asking what tests they did to mention Scala - and to add Groovy there too :D
