I don't know if anyone else replied, but.....
Ghostscript is an interpreter/renderer and GSView is a GUI for it, they
don't support editing PDF files, so there is no expectation of adding or
changing the source PDF, and that includes such "notes".
I think Ghostscript ought to be able to display the content of the
"notes", but to be sure, one of us (the GS devs) would have to examine
an example. But even if GS can, it may be that GSView doesn't expose
that functionality - I rarely use GSView.....
