Feature request → Make tag export optional
Tags used in darktable are automatically exported to JPEG keywords (HierarchicalSubject and Subject in exiftool -s output).
Make it optional via file export dialog settings.
AFAIR, this behavior started in dt 2.6

No, it has been like that for as long as I can recall. 4 years ago, I was surprised when pictures imported in Flickr showed the same tags in Flickr than the ones I added in dt. So much for privacy. dt puts every EXIF of the source file (including gear and GPS tags) plus the history stack and internal XMP fields in the output file.
The metadata API needs a complete rewrite anyway. There are multiple duplicate of that feature request here, the oldest are almost 8 years old.
