It could be that the plugins are not loaded yet for the specific window when it checks if there's content in the sidebar and then hides it because there's none yet.The plugin system changed between 2.32 and 3.0 which is why it could have worked in the older version.

Sure, it's a valid request I guess. But I doubt that we get down to
fixing it soon. :(

Well, the extension to customize the shown elements would be a (not so
small) extension to the Exif Display plugin (which has lower priority).
The re-display of the data from the properties dialog in the sidebar
will be in the main application.
