Lightroom Downloader does not download uploaded .xmp sidecar files

Dear adobe,

I would like to use the "Lightroom Downloader" to backup my Lightroom CC cloud content. Unfortunately it does not download my .xmp sidecar files I once uploaded together with my RAWs. Because my edits represent an enormous investment of time, it is insufficient if only my unedited originals can be downloaded, and my edits are stuck in the cloud. The "Lightroom Downloader" seems to download some .xmp sidecar files, maybe only when there are fresh edits. But even if I add e.g. a keyword to my files to trigger a change, it does not download my .xmp files with all my edits. So I feel kind of trapped with the LRCC cloud now. Is there a way to download all originals together with their corresponding sidecar files without the "save to" option, which would export everything to a single folder?
