Why does Premiere change the colors of H.264 4:4:4 videos?

I recorded a video using 4:4:4:4 space color using OBS. But when I try to edit it in Premiere, colors are exposed and washed out, I checked out and the second image (which is the original) uses 0,0,0 in black pixels, and the first one (screenshot taken using the camera icon in Premiere) is 16,16,16, it may be using 16-235 instead 0-255. Why is this happening? I'm using premiere to edit Animted GIF pixelarts and I need to maintain color accuracy


I tried using all the codecs in Sequence Settings, changing CUDA to software, etc.

The first image has the correct colors. I used Photoshop to import the video and extract a part of it from there. The second image shows how Premiere interprets or converts the colors to a limited range. How can I avoid this conversion?
