Lightroom Classic: Read Metadata from file - crop

Starting with LR Classic v10.2, the Read Metadata from file option is no longer finding the crop info from the XMP metadata section. The same issue exists with the v10.3 update.  If the file has a crop during the initial Import, then the crop will be found and applied to the image.  If the crop is added by another application after the initial Import, then you used to be able to use the Read the Metadata from file option and the crop would then be applied to the image. Star ratings, color labels and keywords are all updated when using the Read Metadata from file option, but not the crop.  The only current work around is to remove the file from the catalog and then re-import the image. This problem is in both the Mac and Windows versions of Lightroom Classic.

"If the crop is added by another application after the initial Import,"  It would be helpful for reproducing this issue if you could include an example application or two that causes this behavior.
