If you changed the setting to insert the metadata under Preferences - Common options - Structure detection this setting will be used for any books you convert that had never been converted before. If a book had been converted previously the previous "saved settings" would be used again. To get around this if doing a bulk conversion of many books you must uncheck the Use saved conversion settings for individual books box before clicking OK to convert the batch. Or if converting a single book you must click restore defaults before clicking OK to convert the book. See attached.
