I'm guessing that you don't get that info from the windows explorer but
a custom explorer-replacement instead?
Because the PID4 with FMTID {F29F85E0-4FF9-1068-AB91-08002B27B3D9} is a
predefined column that's available in explorer. It's the column for
"author" that's also used e.g. for word docs.
That's why you don't get a description or the correct title: it seems
your explorer replacement doesn't know about that FMTID and has the
title left over from the previously asked column (PID=3).

The windows explorer does this correctly and uses the predefined info
for that default column, then lets the shell extension overwrite/set
some custom formatting.
