[Gmsh] sphere created in Salome produces empty mesh

I am trying to mesh a sphere that I have created in Salome and saved in either
BREP,STL,STEP or IGES format.
Opening any of those geometries in Gmsh shows nothing, except for the STL format
which shows a surface triangular representation of the sphere. Is this expected
Running any of these commands produces empty meshes or error messages:
gmsh -3 Sphere_1.brep
gmsh -3 Sphere_1.stl
gmsh -3 Sphere_1.step
gmsh -3 Sphere_1.iges
Is the reason that a sphere has no edges? If yes, what steps are required to
save geometries with spherical boundaries in Salome and to create a 3D
tetrahedral mesh for them using Gmsh?
Btw, creating a Box in Salome and have Gmsh create a 3D mesh for this box works
