Publishing to AGOL overwrites editor tracking data

I have a feature class that I maintain in a geodatabase that has editor tracking enabled.  It has the standard fields: created_user, created_date, last_edited_user and last_edited_date.  I'm using the python functions in to create the SD draft and to stage the definition file. Then using the ArcGIS API for Python to update and publish the SD file in AGOL.


When I publish my map, all values in my editor tracking fields get overwritten with the date/time the script runs and the username that I use to login to AGOL.  If I choose to make those fields not visible in my Pro project, then no data appears in my updated service.  This happens despite having editing capabilities disabled.


Is there a way to prevent this overwrite from happening?  I would like the tracking information to reflect what I have in my geodatabase.
