Different Milliseconds Precision of Datetime in Power BI Desktop and Dataflow

Hi there, I have a question about transforming datetime columns.

When using Power BI Desktop, the Power Query would keep the datetime precesion to milliseconds.

However, when using Power BI Dataflow, the Power Query would round the datetime to seconds.

I wonder why they have different results? Is Power BI Dataflow support precision to milliseconds in the same way like Power BI Desktop?
