Can't record the ACR generic "Apply Previous Settings" as an Action in Ps

I want to use ACR in Photoshop and use the last settings applied.

When I do that manually, it works ok.

 

If I want to automate it as an Action, It doesn't work because the Action saves a list of specific values and not a group of values (that could be stored in Preferences). That group of values could be a file that could always save the last specification usage of ACR in PS.

 

For example, Liquify saves the last mesh used as a file on Preferences:

"/Users/pedrocm/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop 2022 Settings/Liquify Last Mesh.psp"
Then I could call it in an Action or Script, and it would work always having the last used mesh Liquify specifications.
For example the code call for "Liquify Last Mesh"

{"$LqMD":"/Users/pedrocm/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop 2022 Settings/Liquify Last Mesh.psp","_obj":"$LqFy"}

If I do the same on ACR in PS, the code is not the "ACR last spec". Instead is the speficics stored on a recorded Action:

{"$CrVe":"16.0.1","$GuUr":"<x:xmpmeta xmlns:x=\"adobe:ns:meta/\" x:xmptk=\"Adobe XMP Core 7.0-c000 1.000000, 0000/00/00-00:00:00        \">\n <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf=\"http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#\">\n  <rdf:Description rdf:about=\"\"\n    xmlns:crs=\"http://ns.adobe.com/camera-raw-settings/1.0/\"\n   crs:UprightFourSegmentsCount=\"3\"\n   crs:UprightFourSegments_0=\"0.231132412,0.112691399,0.263019349,0.897845740\"\n   crs:UprightFourSegments_1=\"0.824209842,0.449779076,0.806121722,0.938445797\"\n   crs:UprightFourSegments_2=\"0.299548758,0.050313331,0.828177015,0.023088944\"/>\n </rdf:RDF>\n</x:xmpmeta>\n","$PerU":5,"$PrVN":6,"$PrVe":251920384,"$Upri":"<x:xmpmeta xmlns:x=\"adobe:ns:meta/\" x:xmptk=\"Adobe XMP Core 7.0-c000 1.000000, 0000/00/00-00:00:00        \">\n <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf=\"http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#\">\n  <rdf:Description rdf:about=\"\"\n    xmlns:crs=\"http://ns.adobe.com/camera-raw-settings/1.0/\"\n   crs:UprightVersion=\"151388160\"\n   crs:UprightCenterMode=\"0\"\n   crs:UprightCenterNormX=\"0.5\"\n   crs:UprightCenterNormY=\"0.5\"\n   crs:UprightFocalMode=\"0\"\n   crs:UprightFocalLength35mm=\"35\"\n   crs:UprightPreview=\"False\"\n   crs:UprightTransformCount=\"6\"\n   crs:UprightTransform_5=\"1.041904751,-0.072653634,0.004040699,0.049837859,0.989245197,-0.085139212,0.047974958,-0.129688803,1.000000000\"/>\n </rdf:RDF>\n</x:xmpmeta>\n"}

In this case, I want to repeat the last ACR settings on another layer or from a Layer to a mask. I am forced to do it manually and not in a PS Action that adapts to the "ACR last spec".

Can ACR save a specification as "ACR last spec" file in PS Preferences and use it in PS recorded Actions? This would elevate automatization and the value to all clients.

I would love this implemented on PS last versions and not only the beta one.
