Exporting component updates to Zeplin will create duplicate components

Dear all.

With screens, Figma export will overwrite the existing screen if the screen name is exactly the same.

With components this does not seem to work consistently although the components name is the same.

Any best practice you guys can share?
What to avoid?

I constantly have to remove all components in Zeplin and export from scratch.

Thanks.

Same goes for colors apparently.
After Figma upload of an updated design, Zeplin will tell the colors are all new and wants to add them.
When I decline, old colors “break” and are not linked to the newly updated screens.

Again I kindly ask for your guidance.
