Brightness level problem after suspend (Gnome 44.1)

Hardware Model: Lenovo ThinkPad X220
OS Name: Fedora Linux 38 (Workstation Edition)
OS Type: 64-bit
GNOME Version: 44.1
Windowing System: Wayland
Kernel Version: Linux 6.2.15-300.fc38.x86_64

I have ‘Dim Screen’ and ‘Automatic Suspend’ turned on in the settings, and those two work like a charm. After a set time of inactivity, brightness gets reduced and after some more time the machine is suspended. The problem is that after I wake it up, the brightness level does not get back to its initial level (which is 100% in my case) but is always set to the dimmed value. I have to set it to 100% via the slider or keyboard shortcut. Can this be somehow set somewhere, where I haven’t looked, or is it a bug/feature of GNOME?

EDIT: I did some more testing, and it is even more bizarre than I initially thought. I plugged in an external monitor via VGA/D-SUB, waited for the screen to get dimmed then the laptop to auto suspend and the brightness after waking up from suspend is set to 100% on the external monitor but not on my laptop’s screen.
