The preview image for the Texture Sample Node does not update when the Texture parameter is linked to a Texture Object.


Tested in 4.21.2 (CL - 4753647), 4.22 (CL - 5365847), 4.23(CL - 5396611)

Steps to Reproduce
  1. Open a Blank project
  2. Create a new material
  3. Within the material editor, create a Texture Sample
  4. Create a Texture Object and link it to the Texture parameter of the Texture sample
  5. Set the BaseColor of the material to be the Texture Sample's main output
  6. Change the Texture value for the Texture Object node


Expected: The Texture Sample Preview image would reflect the same texture value of the Texture Object

Result: The Texture Sample does not update
