Currently the "Common Data Service (beta)" connector in Power BI only features "import" queries for data.
In 2017 there was a release of a "PowerApps Common Data Service" connector, that featured direct queries:
"Reports reflect real time data
There’s no need to schedule a refresh in Power BI. When the data is updated in CDS, changes are reflected in reports. Reports are interactive and responsive. You can interactively explore CDS data using the capabilities of Power BI."
Will this feature come again?
Direct query would be especially helpful in combination with passign through the current user, so that the security model of CDS is also respected in the reports.

The "Common Data Service (beta)" connector is still in development, as your post, it only supports import queries currently. Maybe future changes would contain DirectQuery feature, you can submit a feature request in Power BI ideas forum to make Power BI team improve the CDS connector .
