I think this issue shown after integration of Gutenberg editor, The {save_post} and {save_POST_TYPE} hooks always triggers {$update} as TRUE.

I made some tests, The {$update} is TRUE on saving the post for the first time and on updating also, it's always true.

add_action( 'save_post', array( $this, 'cpt_metas_save' ), 10, 3 );

public function cpt_metas_save( $post_ID, $post, $update ) {        
    $db_values = array(
        'is_new'    => 'No'

    if( $update ) {
        /* Saving New Post trigger this -- always {Yes} */
        $db_values['is_new'] = 'Yes';
    else {
        $db_values['is_new'] = 'No';

    /* Connect to IBM Server */
    /* Update DB */
    update_post_meta( $post_ID, 'postmetas_save_test', wp_unslash( $db_values ) );
