Pre-filling of the field Author field


I have questions about how the authors field works.

I have a content type: Article, with an author field, which has the current user as default value.

For the creation of an article no problem.

But I also have imported articles that don’t have an author.
That’s what I want.

But when an administrator modifies an imported article with the empty author field, the authors field is pre-filled with his name.
If he has the presence of mind to empty it, no problem. But that is not the case.

How to ensure that the pre-filling of the field is maintained at creation.
But to disable it when editing?

Thank you.
