I've got response from the Product Team.
The behavior is by design. The users can use an URL parameter refresh with reload interval specified in minutes, e.g.: https://app.powerbi.com/view?r=<embedcode>&refresh=5
Strange, I can't recall that I read anything about this function, but hey, going to give it a try :-)

thank you for the info! However, I have yet to make it work. I tried it with "&refresh=1", but the report is still not refreshed one hour after the last data upload.
However, I might not be using the embedding feature as intended. The MS rep in our company told us not to use the embed code directly in a Sharepoint webpart. Instead, we save the code in a .txt file and display the file in a webpart. Not sure if this is part of the problem, but this is currently our only option.
Wish you the best and hope you were able to solve your issue with this fix.
