Is there any way to pass through/edit/share video - either in FCPX or Compressor - and preserve embedded closed captions within the exported video?

You can’t preserve them, but Compressor can add an scc file.

[Jeremy Garchow] "but Compressor can add an scc file"

Yes, I was able to test that, but the format options are limited. Thanks.

[Oliver Peters]... but the format options are limited.

What do you mean, what format options?
Anyway - Apple Codecs don't support embedded captions.
In theory Adobe/PPro does.

You can only use .scc files. You can only add one caption file. So, for example, if I need both English and Spanish in one file, I can't do that.

[Andreas Kiel] "Anyway - Apple Codecs don't support embedded captions."

Hmm... I have ProRes files with two different embedded caption "tracks". I can use Telestream Switch to trim those files and re-encode (in video pass-though mode) new versions, which maintain the existing, embedded captions.

[Andreas Kiel] "In theory Adobe/PPro does."

You can add and edit captions in Premiere Pro and then export files with either "burned-in" (open) captions (subtitles) or with separate sidecar caption files.

My bad - I wanted to write "Apple MXF codec" since I assumed you wanted to use embedded scc for broadcast.

Not problem. However, in our case we had a master for broadcast on Univision (US Spanish language channel) and it was ProRes QuickTime with embedded English and Spanish closed captions. So MXF isn't a given here.
