I've attached a couple of files. There were no XMP sidecars created.

Hopefully these files are useful. I think they are. It *is* possible that the
bug may be that Digikam simply does not re-read the metadata correctly once it
has already been loaded. (In this case, my files wouldn't demonstrate the bug,
but one can easily replicate it.) But to test this, I created a copy of the
images in my file manager. Digikam saw the new files as they were added and it
loaded them. The same issue is present with the copies as with the original...
so the bug does appear to be in how the files are written or read from...
