Profile Edit bug?

When I submit changes to a users profile, one specific (text) column doesn’t change to the provided value. Huge problem because that column is the “role” column. Weird part is that it does initially change the value, but after a couple of seconds clears the value with no input at all.

This has been discussed in the Expert Slack earlier today. My original understanding was that the app could only change the role IF the user changing the role also had that same role (obviously for security reasons). But I was partially wrong. Further discussion revealed that currently the role can ONLY be changed within the data editor or google sheet, or externally using the glide API.
