If you want to preserve the metadata, you have to export the images as the current, edited versions. File > Export > Export ... images. Then you can enable the flag "Tile, keywords, descriptions":
Pick a very high quality for the JPEG, so not to lose quality. For the RAWs export them as Photo Kind TIFF.
You could export the RAWs as "File > Export > Export unmodified original" and keep it RAW, but that will not include the metadata. And Photos will allow you to export a XMP sidecar file with the metadata, but when I tested, it did not apply the the metadata when importing the RAW files again. So the best compromise for the RAW would be to export as TIFF, another lossless format.
