SSRS Shared Dataset: date format stuck in MMDDYYYY in Power BI Desktop

Hi all,


I've deployed a Shared Dataset to my Report Manager (ReportServer) and this shared dataset includes a DateTime column, here is a preview in RM (with "MonthDate" being my DateTime column):




I am then connecting to this Shared Dataset via the oData feed method, which is mostly pulling through OK into the Power Query Editor... except that my "MonthDate" column is returning the date as "MM/DD/YYYY..." and I can't seem to change this despite using the "Change Type -> Use Local" settings "English (Australia)". Both of the regional settings on my PC and in Power BI Desktop options are set to "English (Australia)":


Compare the "Month" and "MonthDate" columns below:



I wish to set the MonthDate column to DD/MM/YYYY so I can use the Time Intelligence (and time slicer) correctly.


Any ideas on what to check?
