I finally found how to force Illustrator to respect the linked file's dimensions when modifying files outside of Illustrator by setting the Placement Options setting to File Dimensions (cf. screenshot below). However, I need to do this for every linked file, which is a pain.

How do I change the default behaviour? I want every image I drag-and-drop to be directly set to Placement Options: File Dimensions.
