I’ve never worked with something like this but I am assuming that it is what you suspect. The values are probably being save to whatever post is being created by the plugin you mentioned.
The way I would work around this issue is to create either an acf/save_post filter or a WP save_post filter. The reason I say either is because I’m not 100% sure that the acf/save_post action will fire given the way you’re using the ACF field. Thinking about this it would be better if it’s possible to do this using an acf/pre_save_post filter, but again, I’m not 100% certain that this action will fire either. You’ll need to do some testing so see which filter you can use.
I’d start with acf/pre_save_post https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acf-pre_save_post/
and then try acf/save_post https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/acfsave_post/
and if both of those fail I’d move on to WP save_post https://codex.wordpress.org/Plugin_API/Action_Reference/save_post
In the filter I’d get the values that are being saved to the post and update the values to the user.
