Can I reference Frame A as Frame B's background fill?

Let’s say I have Frame A, my profile screen.
I use this screen as the background of many other screens (i.e. Action Sheet overlays, alerts), so I duplicate Frame A and work on top of it. (Now I have Frames B, C & D).

When I come to update Frame A, I have to manually update Frames B, C & D, which is horrible.

So I export Frame A as an image and import it as the background image of Frames B, C, D.

Is there a way to automate this? For example setting Frame A as the background of Frames B, C, D. Even a plugin I can run once my Frame A updates are complete (would be very expensive to continuously run this).

Why not use components for this?
