Found a bug in a corner case while working on expanded test coverage in #23167:

>>> # the following three have the same result
>>> pd.Series(['a', 'b', 'aa'], dtype='category').str.extractall(r'(a)')
>>> pd.Series(['a', 'b', 'aa']).str.extractall(r'(a)')
>>> pd.Index(['a', 'b', 'aa']).str.extractall(r'(a)')
0 0      a
2 0      a
  1      a
>>> pd.Index(['a', 'b', 'aa'], dtype='category').str.extractall(r'(a)')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "C:\ProgramData\Miniconda3\envs\pandas-dev\lib\site-packages\pandas\core\", line 2567, in extractall
    return str_extractall(self._orig, pat, flags=flags)
  File "C:\ProgramData\Miniconda3\envs\pandas-dev\lib\site-packages\pandas\core\", line 1012, in str_extractall
    is_mi = arr.index.nlevels > 1
AttributeError: 'CategoricalIndex' object has no attribute 'index'

So Series, categorical Series and Index work with extractall, but not CategoricalIndex.
