Your config says

gzip_types text/plain application/xml;

Your output log says

Content-Type: text/css

Copy one big-enough file to a .txt-ending name -- for example copy
dashboard.css to dashboard.txt -- and then try to access that file and
see if it is gzipped.

If it is, then include the right content types in your gzip_types config
and it should Just Work.

If it isn't, then more investigation is needed.

Good luck,
