Question Command line conversion not including metadata in cover generation


I'm trying to convert files via a batch file, which works fine with just the filename using this syntax:
ebook-convert "filename.html" "filename.epub"

What I'd like is to add the publisher name to the front cover. In the GUI, I've set the sub-title template to {publisher}, and unchecked the 'get metadata from file only' option. When I generate covers from the GUI, it works.

But when I run it from the CLI or batch the metadata isn't added to the cover. The syntax I'm using is:
ebook-convert "filename.html" "filename.epub" --publisher "publisher name"

Am I missing something? Should this work?
