Unable to Update Content Controls

I have a document library where I have added a Content Control to the template for a content type in order to update the version number on the document using the "Update Document" action. I got the idea from reading Write to Documents using the Update document action. However, for some reason, I can't get the content control to update.  The workflow I have runs fine with no errors, it just doesn't update the content control.

 

I verified that the name of the Content Control in the document and what I'm using in the workflow matched.

 

Anyone have any ideas on what might be causing the issue?  Since this is a custom content type, do I need to update the template at the site level or the list level? Initially I was using a regular document as the template instead of an actual template document, so I thought that might be the issue.  But after I changed it I was still having the issue.
