How to paste text from external source into Figma’s frame?

I’m trying to paste text I copied from any app other than Figma into particular Frame. Once I hit Cmd+V while having Frame selected, it appears directly on the Canvas – above (and outside of) all layers. It works as expected (pastes text into selected Frame) when I copy text layer from Figma.

Surprisingly, it works good for images: image copied from website and pasted into Figma, appears inside selected frame.

Is this bug or feature? Is it possible to achieve expected behavior?

Thanks in advance for your support.
