Is there a way to know what's included in the objects like the above or the "High Bandwidth" which contains 1574 applications?

The URL Filtering category will match any URL that has been categorized by Check Point.
You can see this by opening the Application picker and searching for it.

We do not expose what URLs/Applications are included as part of the various categories.
However, a few examples are sometimes listed as part of the description.

Thank you PhoneBoy...
So, probably the URL Filtering category block google.com (and the others) for wrong categorization?

google.com and the others are categorized by our URL Filtering.
This means, in addition to whatever categories those URLs match, they will also match the tag "URL Filtering".
Since that's included in a Drop rule, those destinations are getting dropped.
