There is a suggestion JRASERVER-59132 opened in Atlassian Jira which you can comment & watch. At the moment out of the box Jira doesn't support this and I am personally finding this a proper behaviour model as it doesn't create a confusion like mentioning inactive users or assigning anything to them.

What would be the need to choose inactive users? They couldn't act on issues

There are workaround solutions in this regard that could be used, if it is not necessary to take actions on the issue.

Well it's not always for them to act on. sometimes its as metadata.

I have the same problem with a JSM project where we have them as watchers or metadata fields and it blocks you from editing the issue once they are inactive

Right now a user picker is by default filtered only on active users:

user picker select all active user even if they disabled to login in jira. You can disable users as remove them from all groups but keep active. Account will be disabled but user will be still available in user picker
