When using a standard search form, custom metadata fields which have an option-list that is populated using a table/view  show the internal value instead of the display value, but on the checkin form the display value is displayed.

It is expected that on both the standard search and the checkin form, custom metadata fields with option lists show the display value

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a Table and/or view in configuration manager

2. Create a custom metadata field and use the table and/or view to populate the option list.


3. View the metadata field on the checkin page

4. View the metadata field on the standard search page

The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users are confused since different values are showing up for the same metadata field, depending if they are checking in a file or searching for one.
