See the title. I’m using a mouse1 with my iPad (as of iOS 13.4). The lack of persistently visible scroll bars2 across apps (e.g. in Notes) is reducing my productivity, as I have to do a pointless scroll wheel manoeuver to make it appear (exacerbated by the fact that the hidden scrollbars do not become visible when touching the right hand margin).

So e.g. is there a setting like on the Mac to make the scrollbar always visible?

1: Not an Apple Magic mouse, but various mice with scroll wheels
2: Including the standard, dedicated margin above & below the scrollbar acting as a page up & down hit target
