Text overrides not respected by nested interactive components

I’ve created a simple dropdown menu with a couple options. Each Option is a component with hover and pressed states itself. In my dropdown component I wired up the interactive states to choose between options. When using the component as is, all the variants behave as expected, meaning all text overrides for the specific option names stick across variants. But when I actually play the prototype, the naming overrides only show up at the start. Once I start selecting an option from the dropdown menu, all text overrides fallback to their generic names. I’m happy to upload a file for debugging purposes but don’t know how. Thanks for your help.
