Figma has overrides, it just isn’t separated into an inspector panel. In the instance of your component, select the text layer and just change it in the instance. You can change content, and lots of other things about the text like text alignment and color, basically anything other than actually moving the text element around in the component‘s layout. It’s actually a lot more flexible than Sketch’s text overrides.

Changing text directly in context while in a component is easily one of the best aspects of Figma to me.

Hm, I disagree. It's much more intuitive to change text in-place IMO. Perhaps it's because you're used to that coming from Sketch?
