Once I have done this (that is open and close the Comment box) for an

the captions populated automatically?
What exactly happens here is that when you select a file the embedded
metadata is read and saved in an external comment file that will be used
by the file list view to display the description, the title and the
other fields you selected. This is done for performance reasons because
reading the embedded metadata is a slow task.
So actually you can just select the file to synchronize the metadata,
without the need to open the comment dialog.
Maybe we could add a tool to do this task automatically for all the
files in the current folder.
