Download metadata returns data in whatever format the download source has it. I suggest you run quality check after downloading rather than before.

Personally I set my author information as I wish before doing a metadata download, but I turnoff the download of author information in the metadata download configuration so when I download metadata it never replaces my author information.

You might want to turn off authors in the metadata download configuration. Generally, I have both authors and title turned off. See attached image for the configuration.
