To my understanding:
1) reread metadata : since metadata can change, it could be very useful to have
the ability to force digikam to refresh the database with the updated
information (IPTC caption and keyword). If the "right side bar" allows such a
thing (by a button "Reread" for instance), it's alright (but this should be
working for several files).
2) IPTC checksum should be very heavy, if, when you browse a directory, you
have to check all iptc of all files to find updated information.
3) File/refresh doesn't seem to be linked to metadata, so should be renamed to
"Thumbnail refresh". 

I, personnally, would like to advocate for a "Thumbnail + metadata Refresh"
file menu, since this could be done for all the file currently in the database.
