I saw that: sudo gpasswd -A <admin-name> <group-name> can set Admin for a group and a group can have more than one Admin.

How can I show all Admins of a group if it doesn't even show in /etc/group?

The group admins can be seen in /etc/gshadow.

Check the man page gshadow for the description of the file.
