Yes, that should be turned on. At least in the GUI it is.

The corresponding entries in the config file read:

[EXIF Settings]
EXIF Rotate=true
EXIF Set Orientation=true
Save EXIF Comments=true

And in another place of the config file (???):

[Metadata Settings]
IPTC Author=
IPTC Author Title=
IPTC Copyright=
IPTC Credit=
IPTC Source=
Save Date Time=true
Save EXIF Comments=true
Save IPTC Credits=false
Save IPTC Photographer ID=false
Save IPTC Rating=true
Save IPTC Tags=true
