Approval Workflow: When document is approved, the version historys major version is the initiator users, not the person who approved

I built an approval workflow with the Start and Wait for Approval action. 

 

The Approver approves the document, by the buttons in the Approval email.

 

When document gets approved it shows the wrong user in Version History. The approver does not show as Modified By in Version History. It is the person who initiated the workflow. See screenshot

 

I tried a ton of stuff, and desperately need help on this issue.

@jesperEgo although I haven't tried it and there are comments that it might not work now but there is a blog post describing how you can change the Modified by at http://johnliu.net/blog/2019/2/flowninja-hack-78-modifying-modified-by-and-modified-time-with-micros...
