Metadata is, almost by definition, non-essential to the layer and pixel composition of an image; so the fact GIMP ignores it during load only makes a difference if you need to write said composition back to a TIFF file with original metadata preserved. (Which is, of course, little consolation if your particular workflow relies on this.)
Numbers may not lie, but neither do they tell the whole truth.
