As of R2020b ButtonGroup and Panel both support Enable when the button group or panel is parented to a uifigure.

uipanel cannot be enabled or disabled: they can just be set to be visible or not.
switch get(hObject, 'Value')
case 1:
set(handles.panel_1, 'Visible', 'on');
set(handles.panel_2, 'Visible', 'off');
case 2:
set(handles.panel_1, 'Visible', 'off');
set(handles.panel_2, 'Visible', 'on');

Parameter Enable for popup menu control:
  • on - regular menu
  • off - menu blocked with grey background
  • inactive - menu blocked without grey background

That is correct for uicontrol style popup . It does not apply for uipanel
