 In our client application we are trying to set TLS 1.2 in ClientHello message. The OpenSSL version is 1.1.1h

We use the function

SSL_CTX_set_min_proto_version(ssl->ctx, TLS1_2_VERSION);
If I test the version right after setting it does return 1.2
SSL_CTX_get_proto_version(ssl->ctx) == TLS1_2_VERSION

But the ClientHello is still created with TLS 1.0
(16 03 01 01 42…)

Any explanation why the ClientHello message ignores min TLS version?
Any suggestion how to enforce 1.2 version?

You are looking at the *record layer* TLS version. This is always 1.0 in the ClientHello, regardless of what TLS protocol version is actually being requested. TLS protocol version fields are a bit of a minefield of confusion and unexpected behaviour. For example in an OpenSSL TLSv1.3 ClientHello the record layer protocol version will be set to TLSv1.0, the ClientHello message itself will have the protocol version set to TLSv1.2, and the supported versions extension will list the actual supported versions (i.e. in your case it would be TLSv1.3 and TLSv1.2).
