I was trying to find reasons why your pdf metadata wasn't being read. It apparently boils down to some incompatability between the way you create your internal pdf metadata and the library used by Calibre to read it.
As Kovid has said in connection with another PDF metadata problem:

That bug is in the PDF library that calibre uses to set PDF metadata. Unfortunately, I don't know of any library that manages to set or for that matter even read PDF metadata with 100% success.
It looks like your problem is similar. I believe Calibre uses PoDoFo to parse and manipulate PDF metadata. I know PoDoFo was updated recently, and the new code was brought into Calibre to fix other issues with that library. If you decide your pdf metadata format is valid and PoDoFo is failing, you may want to make a bug report to them:
