PS 21.0.2 Win 10 / linked EXR alpha turns black on layer update

Hello there,

I have a PS file with a lot of linked smart objects to EXR files.

When creating a linked smart object of one of my EXRs it is loaded and displayed premultiplied as expected. I have set "Alpha as Transparency" as the default option when placing EXRs with alpha channel.

Now, when I rerender the EXR, Photoshop recognizes the file update and updates the smart object but does not load the alpha anymore and instead all transparency turns black.
The only way to get the alpha back is to relink to the file or place a new smart object.

Does anyone have an idea how I could keep linked EXRs with alpha and have PS update them correctly?

I can't replace or relink 50 layers with every update :/

I appreciate any help or idea!
