I tried the e-mail deliverability and cPanel is suggesting an IP from China.
This is a fresh server. Is this normal?

It's not normal but does indicate a potential routing issue, is your server NAT routed?

That IP does not originate from China, you're doing the lookup backward, it is a Google IP address. IP's are listed in reverse order in a PTR record. I'd assume the IP belongs to your Google Cloud instance.
