    $\begingroup$ Bools often create poor topology. They can't just "imprint" into the middle of a face, they must choose a point (or more) on a nearby edge to "connect" the cut to. You will have to correct the bad topology in order to get proper shading. $\endgroup$ – Christopher Bennett Aug 4 '20 at 21:52

    $\begingroup$ Josh Gambrell on Youtube has some terrific tutorials on just this sort of issue. His channel: youtube.com/channel/UCXfGjwohMgPm4Ng2e1FXySw $\endgroup$ – zippy Aug 4 '20 at 22:17
  • $\begingroup$ Just wanted to add: If you're using a bevel modifier after the boolean, you can select "Harden Normals" (or add a weighted normals modifier) and that can sometimes clear up shading issues like this. Another thing to check is to make sure Angle mode is turned on in the bevel, so only very hard edges get beveled. Everyone else here is correct though - clean up is necessary after boolean operations to minimize double verts and wonky topology. $\endgroup$ – Jay Aug 5 '20 at 2:43
