the way you ask the question leads me to think you know of such an app
for some other operating system(s)...if so, you can try going to these
sites and search using the name of that known app in the other systems:

or, say that app is named "PDF_Highlighter" then try something like

or, say you don't know the name of that other system app, then try a
normal search with something like this:

but, i'm sure you tried that already, right?

If you use a Wacom or similar then I would recommend you "Jarnal" a Java
based program that offers various types of highlighters and also a group
work functionality. You can find it in the regular repositories.

Okular; the highlighting is saved separately - so you have to save the
PDF with a new name to include the highlighting.

Good that you mention it, in Jarnal it is the same. I think it is
unavoidable as it is the conversion of a text into a picture.
