Possibly the agent isn't being started from within Gnome you can pair from command line using

/usr/bin/bluetoothctl


This wiki page explains how to do it on Arch: bluetoothctl

You can try just doing the steps to turn the agent on leave the terminal open, and bluetoothctl still running, then launching gnome bluetooth manager and add it with the gui. That might work, though most likely you will need to follow the entire process.

I have done this on Arch bit the process should work for fedora as they both use systemd, and bluetoothctl.
