Lightroom mobile (ios) does not publish XMP data

When using the light room iOS app to make edits, it does not publish XMP data, so there is no way for user's to discover what edits have been made. Lightroom does not even include any identifying metadata to say that a photo has been edited in lightroom, so that a user can differentiate the edited photo from the original.

It’s my understanding that LR iOS is capturing and saving a DNG file, which is the container holding the built in xmp file.

Sorry, I should have been more specific -- I meant once you save the photo to camera roll or export to any other service (dropbox, email, etc) the XMP data is lost. I assume what you are saying is that if you are using lightroom exclusively lightroom stores the data in DNG, right?
