may be, I'm not on the line. But why do you keep two DB's?
I have the same environment (Manjaro and Windows), files are on the Windows-Side along with one SQLite DB. Therefor there's no need to sync and I have the same DB from both OSs.
Do I overlook something?

However, if I'm tagging HEIC and video files and it is creating XMP sidecars, DigiKam is not willing to treat those as "metadata from files" so there is no easy way to update my Windows DB.
