I have one logit model for two subgroups, I want to compare if the confidence intervals for the coefficients across regressions overlap (to see if they could be the same), should I use intervals for raw coefficients or marginal effects?

I definitely wouldn't use the confidence intervals for the coefficients; marginal effects I am not sure about.
