Menu Settings
  /Configure Digikam
    /Metadata (icon list on the left side)
      /Behavior (tab on top)
        /Reading and Writing Metadata
That is where you can set it to write do XMP files next to the original
files or write them to into the image itself.

There is also the export option.
Menu Tools
    /Sync Metadata and database
Chose from database to image metadata.

Have fun
