usageLocation for users not inheriting tenant location.

My tenant location is set to "US" but users are not inheriting that attribute. I can run PowerShell and update them all in AzureAD but would like all users to just get that set during creation. I have tried changing a few attributes i.e.. c and co in Active Directory but that didn't seem to help. We aren't currently using Exchange, so I don't have the MxExchangeUsageLocation attribute. Shouldn't users just default to the same location as the tenant? If not, how would I add this as a field to map and transform into the usageLocation for licensing automatically?

    Hi, you have to assign the usagelocation as part of your onboarding process, there is no inheritance process:

    Even with group licensing, you must assign the usage location per account:
