When a keyword is marked as a Person keyword LR CC embeds the person names also in the IPTC Extended field “Persons shown” – but only on export. My guess: that’s an oversight.

It’s a sensible move to also use the “Persons shown” field and hopefully this will be fix so that this field will not only be filled on export.

That is intentional by design. Having the same information (person keywords) duplicated in multiple locations would mean there is a need to keep the same information synced up in both places always.
