powerapps upload multiplie files form with powerautomate flow to SharePoint Detaset in DocLib, not shareing the metadata of the dataset folder

I have a rather complicated PowerApps form that allows for populating about 15 metadata fields with cascading lookup dropdowns to a dataset folder and uploading up to 10 files into that folder on running the form. All seemed fine but I notice a strange artefact that the first uploaded file in any run of the flow does not populate the shared metadata of the dateset folder. So if you choose but one file to upload, it's metadata is entirely missing.

 

With 2 or more files uploaded you can see the first has no metadata, but the rest of the files in the folder are fully populated. I have looked thru the flow logs and the required content type id guid is present for each file upload, so I'm quite confused why I'm seeing this behavior. 

 

Any clues or suggestions that work to solution greatly appreciated!

the answer is that the "Document Set Settings" of "shared columns" had to be edited (the second time) to be taken seriously apparantly, because reasserting the columns to be shared seemed to be the charm, now all the files inside the docset folder each have the parent folder metadata applied to each. Bizzar! Hope this is helpful to someone.
