Auto-populate user info from LDAP using Jamf API?

Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere.
I'm experimenting with modifying the username value using the REST API rather than our current method of running
jamf recon -endUsername $user, but realized that the former won't update the corresponding user attributes via LDAP as does inventory collection.
I realize I can just PUT the Real Name and Email Address values as well... but that would kind of defeat the purpose of mapping LDAP in the first place, not to mention invite the possibility of inconsistency.
Is there a workaround for this to allow both username updates via API + LDAP autopopulation? Or am I required to update it via recon to achieve this?
