OK here are more information to help for the debugging.
From what I can see on network capture, the ACF datas aren’t sent to the server at the first post save, except for the fields validation.
So basically, the network activity that I see when I push the publish button is something like:
-POST /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php …. action=acf/validate_save_post (the ACF fields are here)
-Ok valid, success
-POST /index.php/wp-json/wp/v2/posts/<id>?_locale=user (in data, there are the post title, categories, status, but no ACF fields…)
-OK, post created
POST /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php action=acf/ajax/check_screen
And that’s all. In this configuration, the ACF data are never sent to the server, except for the validation. So it can be a beginning of the investigation here.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
