what do you mean by "comments"?
In the right side view, selecting "Caption/Tags", I can see
"Title" and "Captions".

I enter unique texts in these input fields and click apply.
Then I look at the jpg file with okteta (hex viewer).

I can find
  - the caption seven times
  - the title two times

For example in the XMP-Part of the file:

  - caption can be found at:

  - title can be found at:

Do your jpg files contain XMP-Data? Have a look at them with
some hex editor and look for something starting with:

My setup:
  - Gentoo Linux
  - KDE 4.8.5
  - DigiKam 2.9.0
