UTI description seems wrong

In Xojo’s file types there is a “Display Name” and “Description” value. But macOS only has UTTypeDescription, nothing for the display name. Exception UTTypeDescription is the display name. With Xojo putting its description in this value in Info.plist, the result is something like this:

That’s not really correct. Every other file type will just say “JPEG image” or something. Seems like UTTypeDescription should be mapped to Xojo’s “Display Name” field. Right?

Just looking for an opinion on the matter before I file the bug report.

Display Name is the name that is shown in Save As dialogs when more than one type is specified.

Shouldn’t that name be the one displayed as the file type in Finder too?
