Even if you update to Gimp 2.10 which has better exif support, that particular
XMP data is lost.

What you can use is Imagemagick - www.imagemagick.org - to save the data
**before** any editing.

The command to extract the data is:

magick original.jpg in.xmp

The file in.xmp is text and can be edited if required.

After editing and exporting the file (edited.jpg) the XMP data is written back
to a new jpeg

magick edited.jpg -profile XMP:in.xmp new.jpg

A couple of screenshots:

1. Shows the terminal and commands.

2. Shows a comparison between the original jpeg and the final (new) edited jpeg.

Not that it helps in your case but why Gimp 2.8.16? The current is 2.8.22 with
many bugs fixed.
