FWIW, I've not treated compression shorts as undergarments. Compression shorts, AFAIC, can go down to the knee even if the shorts do not.

Most of the shorts do, and frankly, no one wears compression shorts (that I've seen) that extend significantly below the hem of the shorts. I don't pay that close attention, to be honest.

I have never advised a player to remove "compression shorts"...if they want to play...

I have, however, advised a player that they must remove their "tights"(long garment all the way to the ankle)...if they want to play.

(If a player really wants that look...why not just wear socks that go above the shorts?)

Something to ponder: For those of you that think Compression shorts are not undergarments...would you wear Compression shorts, by themselves, without "outerwear"?

...come to think of it...I actually have...back in the day. i.e. bicycle looking shorts...speedos... whew!

Back when I was teaching, we had a principal who made a very odd announcement one morning over the public address system. We had been having problems with our middle school students wearing their underwear on the outside (this was some type of fad about twenty-five years ago, probably having something to do with Madonna). I'm sure that he intended to say that students would not be allowed to wear underwear over their outerwear, but he ended up saying, "Students are not allowed to wear underwear". Imagine middle school students being encouraged to go commando. True story.
