FaceID doesn’t get re-enabled after entering password through autofill.

After restarting an iOS device, 1password requires that the password be entered once before re-enabling faceid. If I open the app separately and type in my password, it correctly re-enables faceid. However, if I go through the iOS password autofill flow, I enter my password into 1password (seemingly the same auto flow as opening the app separately) but faceid won’t be re-enabled for future uses. Unless I open it separately after a restart, I will have to always enter my password during autofill flows.

Is this due to some iOS limitation? The authentication flow 1password uses during the autofill process looks identical to opening the app on its own.
