Any idea why only some of my AD groups are showing in SharePoint? I have a Sales group that is in AD AND Office 365 groups, but not showing in SharePoint. I want to add that group to one list.

You cannot use distribution groups as securable objects in SharePoint. It must be converted to a mail enabled security group. This has been the case for nearly a decade.
