SharePoint and webhooks endless loops?

For having event based reactions on list changes, I'm considering to go with webhooks. One thing that comes to my mind is how do I prevent an endless loop with webhooks and sharepoint lists when the webhook updates the same list itself? Is that a thing anyway?

Is anybody using webhooks at all? 

 

Thanks

@Thomas Leclaire have you considered using a flow in Power Automate where you can introduce actions to prevent infinite loops?

Yes, I'm doing this already but I have a scenario which makes it cumbersome to create a flow for one certain list in an unknown number of similar site collections. A webhook subscribtion could be aplied during provisioning by some powershell.
