Problem with reading and writing XMP sidecars for AVI files that have embedded XMP data

I'm encountering a problem with Daminion 3.2 (build 1006 and 992) not reading (and eventually deleting) some data from XMP sidecars created by EXIFTOOL for AVI files that already have XMP data embedded inside the AVI file(reading data from sidecars is turned on).

 

If AVI file does not have embedded XMP data - everything works fine and sidecar is being read. But if there is embedded XMP data - some of the data originally present in the sidecar gets lost/deleted (I have handling of Video Files turned on in preference, and data should be read/written in to sidecars, but notice from the log bellow that some of the data is still being read from the embedded XMP sturcture - problem is that I can't delete embedded XMP data from AVI files, there are no tools to do it).

XMP after being read by Daminion, and then written back out by Daminion. Notice that PreservedFileName and OriginalFilename were deleted. Also notice that data that was originally in sidecar Subject tag was not read, but data from AVI's embedded XMP tag Category was read and is now written out in XMP sidecar:
