Tags not getting read from images

I have two installations of digiKam 8.0.0. There are two directories
where the jpg images are stored. Each installation reads and writes to
these two directories independent of each other. I tag the jpg images in
one installation and physically move these images to the other directory
overwriting them if they already exist. However, after refreshing the
album digiKam does not see these tags written in the other installation.
This is so even after I reread metadata from the file. If I use the edit
metadata command, these tags are visible under the Keywords tab of the
editor indicating that the image file does have this information.
Similarly, the Metadata tab has the correct tag name under the IPTC tab.
If so, why does digiKam not "see" these tags? Even if I search on these
tags the image is not found by the search command.
My OS is Windows 11 for both the installations of digiKam.
