When we assign a text style to a text frame, we lose access to the “details” tab. Therefore, if the text frame is not updated with the new text rendering method (update from last year if I remember correctly), assigning text style (that has this update accepted) doesn’t inherit the update.
As we don’t have access to details after assigning the style we cannot accept the update otherwise than detaching style, updating, and reassigning style.

Hey Amadeusz, I am checking this internally with the team.
You can use the “Recompute text layout in selection” command in the Quick actions to force text layers to use the updated rendering method.
I would prefer such things to be inherited by style assignment but this is a good workaround. Thanks!
