With proprietary RAW formats we are unfortunately unable to write metadata into the file due to a lack of standardization. This is handled similarly by other products such as Adobe Lightroom Classic.

It may happen that writing metadata to a DNG does not work for various reasons. In this case, a XMP file is placed next to the DNG.
