Again step by step:

1. [x] Clean up metadata from the database when rescan files
2. select the images
3. Menu-> Item-> Reread Metdata From File
4. (later) [ ] Clean up metadata from the database when rescan files

Do not restart digiKam, or remove and re-add the collection. If digiKam still 
finds geolocation information, check XMP and sidecar, send me a test image.
