EXIF data: Object distance?


I noticed something strange:

When I edit an out of camera jpeg or an ORF in OWS or Silkypix, then the object distance is not displayed in the EXIF data.

If however, I save the edited image (in DXO or other editors), and open it in OWS or Silkypix, then the object distance is displayed by OWS and by Silkypix.

I would of course appreciate if the object distance is always displayed.

I have yet not determined, which editors cause this effect. Maybe it happens only with DXO, I dont know, but will further investigate it.

Maybe DXO extracts the distance from the vendor specific data fields and writes it into the EXIF?
Does this happen only with DXO edited images?
