I am not sure what use case did you mean exactly.

(locate-library "tramp.el.gz" 'nosuffix)  will return the path to tramp.el.gz as expected

did you mean the following

(locate-library "tramp.el") returning the path to tramp.el.gz?

But what about adding ".gz" to it?

In any case, it is very convenient to not have to worry whether
there's already a suffix there.  You cannot always know that when user
input is involved.
