showInAddressList field is absent in users/delta request and it is null always for user by id request.

I have an issue with field showInAddressList in graph Microsoft Users API.

When I use users delta query this field is absent for all users in response.
Request example:$select=id,userPrincipalName,givenName,surname,displayName,mailNickname,companyName,department,jobTitle,proxyAddresses,mail,otherMails,businessPhones,mobilePhone,faxNumber,showInAddressList  

And if I use get user API I get this field in response but it always is null although this parameter was changed for user in


    "@odata.context": "$metadata#users(id,userPrincipalName,givenName,surname,displayName,birthday,companyName,department,jobTitle,proxyAddresses,mail,otherMails,businessPhones,mobilePhone,faxNumber,mailNickname,showInAddressList)/$entity",  
    "id": "4c0037a7-3eb5-4b75-ba6b-e35615472664",  
    "userPrincipalName": "",  
    "givenName": "Test",  
    "surname": "User",  
    "displayName": "Test User",  
    "companyName": null,  
    "department": null,  
    "jobTitle": null,  
    "proxyAddresses": [  
    "mail": "",  
    "otherMails": [],  
    "businessPhones": [],  
    "mobilePhone": null,  
    "faxNumber": null,  
    "mailNickname": "test.user",  
    "showInAddressList": null,  
    "birthday": "0001-01-01T00:00:00Z"  

But showInAddressList option was changed to false for this user (see attachment 152547-screenshot-2021-11-25-at-120455.png)

Could you please help with these two issues?
