Checkbox "Copy billing address to shipping address" not ticked when creating a record through API

This checkbox is always ticked by default when creating a new account record manually in SugarCRM, but never when creating a record through the REST API.

I've searched around and experimented and it seems like it is not even a Sugar field, even though its "field name" appears to be simply "copy".

Sending this in the record creation request does not tick it:

"copy": "true"


Is there a way to tick this checkbox through API only?

Or is the only way really to create an entire customisation with JavaScript code that would tick this checkbox based on a handful of conditions?
