Update Item SharePoint connector updating rows once every 30 seconds for up to an hour

I have a cloud flow that triggers when an excel file is created with certain properties in a SharePoint folder, and then updates a SPO list with the data from the Excel sheet. I have verified that the Update Item action runs only once per row to be updates, however upon viewing version history in that list, it shows continuous updates close to every 30-45 seconds on many rows for up to 2 hours after the flow has finished, and in some cases before the flow has even executed for that row. This causes random failures in the flow where it complains of not being able to save changes due to another active change happening for that row.

The account that is being used to authenticate the connector is the only account with permissions to edit the list. The list can be completely closed on all of my active browsers and continue to create empty version history changes rapidly for arbitrary amounts of time. The amount of repetition seems to be related to the amount of data entries within each column, but it's not totally consistent. I have checked every possibility on my side and have come to the conclusion that it must be some sort of bug.

Please help!
