It is actually possible, but you will need to write an
org-export-before-parsing-hook that will convert all the comments into
exportable elements.

Not tested, but the hook might be something like

(defun org-export-replace-comments (_)
"Replace all the comments with note blocks."
   (lambda (comment)
     (setf (buffer-substring (org-element-property :begin comment) 
(org-element-property :end comment))
           (format "#+begin_note\n%s\n#+end_node\n" (org-element-property 
:value comment))))
   :granularity 'element
   :restrict-elements '(comment)))
