Well I can you if it is a GEOTiff (standard defined set of Tiff tags) they
are lost.  That of course is true whether you save an xcf or export
back to tiff.  IIUC GIMP uses a 3rd party library to read tiff, and I
guess GIMP spec doesn't specify if on import if GIMP is to retain
meta-data, silently dispose of it, or alert the user that meta-data may
be lost.

As already explained in this thread, libtiff simply doesn't support
preserving metadata.
