Are you applying a metadata preset when importing? A metadata preset with the title/caption fields checked but empty is the most frequent cause.

Thanks for the idea Victoria. I'm not using an import preset in this situation. BUT - when lr updated it seems to have turned on an old metadata preset (not meant for use with that catalog) that was blanking those fields. All better now.
