How can we observe hover event on TransformControls?

I’d like to know when hovering on TransformControls. I tried using a Raycaster on the root node of the controls, with recursion enabled, but the controls have invisible meshes that fill the while screen space, so this doesn’t work.

Is there a known easy way to detect hover on TransformControls?

AFAIK, no. You might want to raycast only against the visible elements of the controls. In any event, I guess you need to customize TransformControls in order to achieve this feature.
