====================================

REPRO STEPS:

1. Download TestMesh_00.zip and TestMesh_01.zip attached files.
2. Extract TestMesh.FBX from TestMesh_00.zip.
3. Open UE4 and Import TestMesh.FBX Mesh with default settings
4. Extract TestMesh.FBX from TestMesh_01.zip and REPLACE TestMesh.FBX from TestMesh_00.zip
5. Reimport the TestMesh.FBX

Reimporitng an image from an FBX if it's been changed by overwriting the original FBX with new file data would update the texture along with the mesh.
