    Since the Unity beta version 2022.2.0b10 one can use the uss style property:
    -unity-sclice-scale: [value]px

    You can calculate the value as follows:
    unity-slice-scale = [your sprite pixels per unit value] / 100

    For example for a sprite with a pixels per unit value of "16" you set -unity-slice-scale: 0.16px
    in the uss style sheet that is attached to the UI element, which uses this sprite (and was sliced with the sprite editor).
