DroneDeploy using auto exposure despite setting "Manual Exposure in DJI app"


I’m having an issue where I’ve created a project and checked “Manual Exposure in DJI app” but according to the EXIF data of the images, Drone Deploy is using auto exposure.

I’m using a DJI Mavic 2 Pro and I’m taking off using the DJI Go app flying to the specified mission height and setting the gimbal pitch and setting the DJI camera to manual, setting exposure, aperture, ISO, white balance. Once the camera settings are to my liking, I switch out to DD and run the mission but DD seems to revert back to auto exposure which is reflected in the EXIF data of all the images captured for the mission. This is pretty annoying.

Am I doing something wrong?
