Update the metadata in downloading books


First of all thank you for your excellent work

All work fine on my QNAP NAS TS 559 Pro II (and OPDS, and HTML), but there is one question
1) preliminary
Calibre update metadata IN downloading files a) while writing eBooks to device/ereader, b) while saving eBooks to disk c) while running ebook-meta utility (stored files). i.e. Almost all the time information IN stored eBooks and in metadb are different.
2) main part
It means, that when I download a eBook via OPDS (and via HTML-interface too), I download the book with unchanged meta data
3) workarounds
Now, I use the written script with ebook-meta utility periodically running on my Mac. It is not the best solution but...

Is it real to write the script (extend the COPS functionality) that would update metadata of downloading eBook files?

Thanks for attention
