Overriding width/height of a child of a component instance doesn't work

1. Describe the bug/issue you’re running into?
Overriding width/height is impossible for the children of a component instance, while it should be possible. The properties are disabled in the panel, even if Resizing is set to Fixed (regardless of whether it’s set in the master or instance override)

2. Are you able to consistently reproduce it? If so what are the steps?
See file

3. Share a screenshot, recording, console log, link to the file, etc.

4. Is the issue only happening in desktop app or a specific browser , or both?
Both

5. What OS/version and/or browser/version are you using?
MacOS Big Sur and Windows 10

I’m surprised this topic didn’t get any upvotes. Not being able to change the sizing/layout for instances is extremely limiting, and unnecessarily multiplies components and versions, especially considering the fact that there’s no support for tables in Figma whatsoever (that is also unimaginable in a prototyping tool in 2021!)
