This is intended - otherwise IntelliJ would try to build these classes 
itself (w/o using make - which won't work)

That's also intended - I have not find a way to set up a project-wide 
SDK which can be configured from command line. SDKs are a global setting 
in IntelliJ.

Uhmmm - I can't seem to be able to reproduce this one, but occasionally 
I did witness something similar. Have you tried updating your SDK to 
something more recent?  E.g is it possible that the SDK you are using is 
old-ish (e.g. Java 16 or something?)
