First, with Exiv2 tool (or an other one), I delete all unwanted tags 
from pictures
Then in DK, I disable all tags management except xmp:
- settings, configure DK
- metadata
- behaviour: I clear all except image tags, read & write sidecar files 
(write to image and xmp sidecar), update file timestamp...,
- display: unselect/clear all (exif, iptc, makernotes, etc) except xmp 
-xmpviewer: select all

Dont forget kipi plugins-> metadataEdit
