As far as I am aware this is limitation of that update a record action.
However, a workaround could be to use the Web API of Microsoft DataVerse instead: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/developer/common-data-service/webapi/overview
1. Register an app in Azure AD and assign the Microsoft DataVerse impersonation delegated permissions
