I haven't yet tried connecting it directly to the mini via Displayport>USB-C cable.

I’m using a USB-C to DisplayPort cable for a direct connection to the pa272. I also tried HDMI to HDMI connection but for some reason, the resolution was limited to 1920x1080.

The M1 Mini should support "one display with up to 4K resolution at 60 Hz" on its HDMI 2.0 port.  Was your HDMI cable a "Standard" HDMI cable or a "High Speed" / "Ultra High Speed" one?  The "Standard" ones are meant for 720p and 1080i HDTVs, and might not support more demanding uses (like connecting a 2560x1440 pixel monitor).
