Similar apparent problem

In the listing for 干す (ほす) there is a compound that doesn't use the character 干.

Those Kanji have the same meaning.

Starting with 干 is the most common way to write this word.

Using 乾 is also correct but less common.

If you take a closer look most dictionary entries list different ways to write the words.

Here's random example with 5 different Kanji.

Btw you are misusing the word compound.

OP is probably talking about 関与 from the 干 kanji listing, not 乾す. But, eh, not so sure what they mean. Jisho.org itself calls stuff like 干す a "Kun reading compound" btw.

This looks like a possible error. I'll investigate.
