-force does not delete existing artifacts for Proxmox builder

When running packer build -force, the build consistently fails with

Error creating VM: error creating VM: 500 unable to create VM 8001 - VM 8001 already exists on node 'pve', error status:

From the documentation, I would expect -force to clean up an existing template with the same name, as the template is neither a vm nor is it turned on.

Proxmox 7.2-11
Packer 1.8.3

Can someone else confirm ?
