This still affects Ubuntu 16.04.
I see that gnome-software shows the title as gedit rather than Text
Editor. That leads me to believe that there is a problem with the
.desktop files or the appstream info gedit is providing.
Maybe Unity is using a special value and that's why Unity shows Text
Editor in the Dash but gedit is used everywhere else.

gedit should display as Text Editor in Default Applications
Status in One Hundred Papercuts:
Status in gtk+3.0 package in Ubuntu:
In places related to choosing which application should be used to open
a file, the entry should be Text Editor. That is what is used in the
Unity menu and dash.
This affects the Default Applications menu in System Settings, the
Open With context menu, the Other Application... dialogue, and the
Open With tab in the file properties dialogue.
