It's stored in a section of JPEG file dedicaced to store IPTC.

Something is missing in digikam kipi interface to rescan automaticly files 
where metadata have change to sync database.

Only JPEG file can be set actually. it's a limitation of Exiv2 libarary witch 
rules metadata. PNG and TIFF/RAW files will be acceded in writing mode later.

The plugin is not yet written to do that.
