Sorry, I thought it was some DOM special attribute, not a style's one.

The problem then lies in the fact that instead of using width/height
to set dimensions of the element some other attribute is used.

For example if that sample was written as

img {
   width:*; // flex width
   height:*; // flex-height, spans row height
   content-sizing: stretch keep-ratio;
then you will get what you want.

In other words the problem is in the design of flexbox itself -
in the manner how you assign flexibility.
