Update file propeties clears value of metadata column



I've been using Microsoft Sharepoint Migration Tool to upload my local folders into Document Sets.  Unfortunately the tool has the nasty habit of changing the content type to Folder (


So I went around this with a Flow that changes the content type back to Documents Set.  That works well, but for an unclear reason it also empties the value of one of my metadata columns : just the Entity column - another metadata column value left unchanged.


I've used Update File Properties to set the content type for each of the folders as show in below screenshots.

How can I troubleshoot this issue ?
