Component from library won't apply constraints when added to a frame

I created a component in my library (a form) applying specific constraints and I published it so I could use it in my design: a sign up page for desktop (1440).

However, the form acts differently inside the frame. It changes the Constraints and resizing options. And even if I change them, it doesn’t behave like it’s supposed to.

I need to adapt the design to smaller screens and it’s becoming a nightmare, because if I change the size of an input, the form gets messy (it doesn’t “adapt”). If I change the main component, there’s no problem.

In this case you see the email input leaves a space at the bottom if changed to a smaller input:

What’s going on?
