MacOS, Version 12.1

In the following code, the "Hi" is above the surface, but you still can't see it from above.

g = Graphics3D[{}, ViewPoint -> 10^3 {1, 1, 1}];
g = Show[g,
  Plot3D[0, {x, -1, 1}, {y, -1, 1}],
  Graphics3D[Inset[Text[Style["Hi", FontSize -> 200]], {0, 0, 1}]]
]

enter image description here

If your RegionFunction ist specified as:

RegionFunction -> Function[{x, y, z}, True],

you will see:

Your edited code is giving me the following output picture by running Mathematica 12.0 without any special settings:

If I'm turning the plane given by the Plot3D null function around the "Hi" is always fully visible.
