const references in C++ functions exposed to Blueprint are always treated as outputs by the parser in UnrealHeaderTool.
You can see this in the (very involved) logic of
Engine/Source/Programs/UnrealHeaderTool/Private/HeaderParser.cpp. This is called by
ParseParameterList during parsing a functions parameter list.
If you want
foo to be an input, add
const (this is what functions like
RandomFloatFromRangeInStream do to facilitate passing the heavyweight stream parameter as an input).
You cannot make it simultaneously an input and an output parameter.
