Most likely you didn't tick the proper box in the configuration dialog:
under the "Metadata" section, in tab "Behaviour", there's an item "Write to 
sidecar files" with a drop-down box below it. I've set that one to "Write to 
image and XMP sidecar". 

Note that the tag-tree-view reflects the data in the database (and not what's 
saved to image or sidecar files), file data are only reloaded on request
