Then you need to explicitly write standard XMPs. (Context menu option).
Thanks to the typical Adobe messup, standard XMPs are named File.XMP which makes it impossible to have two different image file types with individual XMPs. Therefore Bibble, AS and various other programs started to use File.type.xmp to store their settings.
But to facilitate metadata exchange with other programs, AS reads classic XMPs and can be told to write them.
