Have you solved your problem?
I have made a test on my side, and the issue is confirmed on my side.
When customizing a form for a SP list using PowerApps, the Person or Group type column would be decorated as a Combo box control within the app.
Currently, the Combo box control which is bound to a Person or Group type column (of a SP list) could not be auto-populated with Person (or group) info within PowerApps.
If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:
I'm following this isssue in an SR now.
You can ping me over Skype to discuss this further.
This is reproduced as an issue with the newest version of PowerApps.
Thank you for sharing your solution. You can also try to replace by a DropDown control. The disadvantage is that those controls do not have specific "People" layouts to show pictures (Layout control) or subtitles (DropDown control).
