Lack of EXIF data for video clips on A9 & A7Riv

I've been shooting with both A9 & A7Riv wildlife (mostly birds) for a while now.

From stills, which are great, I turned to mixed media (i.e., I try and capture stills as well as video clips of every bird, if I get the chance).

However, I found that for some reason, video clips don't how the camera and lens EXIF and in zoom-tele, what was the degree of tele, as is with stills.

I really don't know why stills should have this info, while clips don't.

Both are habitually post-produced anyways, but while I can access older footage of stills, and observe the equipment and some of the settings I used to obtain them, I cannot with clips.

At least for me it's kind of shame that this info is not available.

-Any thoughts/ reasoning behind this lack of EXIF, will be great to know about.

-Does it bother anyone else? -Or am I the only one?
