Canon EOS 350D doesn't write Lens Type to CR2?

Just found out that my EOS 350D doesn't write its lens type, Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, to its CR2 raw files. I suspected this to be a bug in the software I use, but it looks like the info simply isn't there.

I tried to set it using exiftools by:

$ exiftool -LensType=234 test.CR2
0 image files updated
1 image files unchanged

To no avail: this works for other tags, but not for Lens Type?

Can someone else confirm this?
Is there a workaround?

Any help is appreciated...

Canon EOS 350D (EOS Digital Rebel XT / EOS Kiss Digital N)
