WordPress keeps changing the original author name when someone else is trying to edit the post

Recently my team noticed an issue when we tried to review articles on our site before publication.

When our editor in chief tries to review an article written by a given journalist in order to spot and correct potential mistakes after he saves the changes he made to the article wordpress automatically makes him the author of the article. When he tries to manually change the name back to the original author, saves the change and refreses the site it again makes him (the editor in chief) the author of the article. The same issue applies to anyone who edits another users article. The last person in the article automatically becomes the author. This hasn't happen before and is dissrupting our workflow.

I'm fairly confident this is a dupe of the ticket linked by Sergey, #50754. Going to close this out so we can keep the discussion focused.
