ebook-meta command doesn't add cover to ePub and mobi

Command line documentation lists epub, azw3, and mobi as supported formats for writing metadata. However, all my attempts to add jpg cover to epub and mobi using command ebook-meta failed. I was able to add cover only to azw3.
I managed to replace cover in epub using Calibre editor but this is not an option for me, I need command line support for this matter.
Is it correct that epub and mobi do not support writing cover as metadata?

Covers can only be updated if the book already has a well defined cover. If it does not, ebook-meta cannot update the cover.

Cover is a supported meta type for PUB and AZW3.

The surprisingly named ebook-polish, but polishing only works on epub and azw3, not mobi.

Sorry, idiot brain freeze.

It's late, I'm tired.

Realized right after I hit Post Reply and tried to cover it up but you were too fast for me.

So, I cannot predict in advance if cover is replaceable?
I have two epubs, each has a cover and one cover gets replaced but another not.
Is there any way to find out if cover is well-defined or not?

Use ebook-polish which will insert a new cover if no well defined cover is present in an epub or azw3.
