Employee ID does not get carried over to "Person Id" field in "Add a Person" component.

Consider the following scenario:

HR user is trying to add a person with the intent of adding job data. HR tries to enter personal information(Add a person), finds out that an ID already exists. So HR is not interested in updating person information any more (because personal data already exists) and wants to update Job for the existing ID. Normally, there is a link to add org relationship on Add a Person component to add job data for an ID.

Given the way Carry ID works/does not work on Add a Person component, in order to update job data, the only way would be to go via the Add Employment Instance component. When you click on Carry ID on Add a person component, and then navigate to Add Employment Instance upon finding a match, the ID does not carry over. So the Carry ID button does not serve its purpose. This process is as good as HR user copying and pasting an ID that is found. Is there any other setup needed to ensure that the ID carries over to Add Employment Instance or Other Payee links?
