Auto-rotation broken after update to One UI 5.1 on S22

So it seems the recent update to One UI 5.1 on my Galaxy S22, broke the auto-rotation. Now, everything that's affected by the auto-rotation being switched on, roates to landscape/horizontal all the time (for example in Google Photos or Chrome). If I move the phone from horizontal to vertical, it changes to portrait, but then almost immediately rotates back to landscape again. This also affects photos taken - they're now all registered as taken in landscape-mode. 

I was wondering if one of the sensors were perhaps broken, but if I run the sensor-tests, they all pass. And everything worked fine until I installed the latest update, two days ago.

I'm based in Norway, and the full version info is - 

 

One UI version: 5.1

Current version: S901BXXU3CWAI / S901BOXM3CWAI / S901BXXU3CWAI

Security patch level: 1 February 2023

 

Anyone else have this issue?

Have you two tried disable auto rotate and then turn it back on?

Yes, doesn't help unfortunately. I also tried booting in safe mode, to see if that reset something, but no luck. At this point, the only thing I haven't tried, is a total factory reset. I use the phone very actively during the workday, so I'm kinda reluctant to do a reset, but I guess I have to try it at some point, unless Samsung find a bug in the software and fix it.
