Auto rotate breaks lock screen orientation

Just purchased a Galaxy Tab S8 I S8+ I S8 Ultra (S8+, specifically,) and I'm encountering an issue where the lock screen is stuck in portrait orientation whenever auto rotate is enabled. When unlocking the device, it will stay in portrait until I physically rotate the device and rotate back to landscape. Any idea how to address this?

Disabling auto rotate and locking into landscape fixes this issue, but then you have to enable auto rotate once more later.

@SpoiledSoul: Please be aware that some apps are not optimised for use in Landscape mode, so will lock the orientation to Portrait. The is true of the Home Screen and Lock Screen, by default, however it is possible to allow Landscape mode by swiping from the top of the screen to the bottom > Tap on the words 'Auto rotate' > Rotate to landscape mode, and toggle the Home screen and Lock screen switches. Let me know if this helps.

Thanks for the tip, Andrew. The toggles for "Home" and "Lock screen" do not exist in the current One UI 4.1 for my S8+, but I have seen that this is a solution on phones.
