Keep the layer in the map when overwriting

I have an ArcGIS Pro project with a finished layout. I realised that I have to overwrite on of the layers of the map with a spatial join. When you overwrite a layer in ArcGIS Pro, it typically gets first removed and then re-added which will remove symbology and legend order. So I did that in a different map in the same project and it still removed the layer from the map that I use in the final layout. Is there a way to avoid it in arcpy? I will have to update the layer again and would like to keep the data analysis script and the layout script in one project.

In the options, if you un-check the Remove layers that..... setting, it will update the layer, but not remove-re-add it to the map.

This way, it stays in the correct order, and retains it's symbology, etc.

.. and remember to save the new settings before running the analysis.
