Description Search Attribute is not Populated with Custom META Datatag even After Mapping it Correctly (Doc ID 887632.1)

SES is not correctly handling custom META data tag mappings for Description search attribute.
When a web source is parsing documents with a custom meta tag definition as for example:

<meta name="DESCRIPTION" content="this is my test description"/>

If the META tag is named "DESCRIPTION" , all works correctly. However if the html page uses a
custom name as follows

<meta name="DC.DESCRIPTION" content="this is my test description"/>

And then you map in the source "Metatags mappings" using

Document Attribute: DC.DESCRIPTION
Type: String
Search Attribute: Description (String)

After running the crawler, the search hit list does not show the value in DC.DESCRIPTION handled
as the Description attribute.
