I'm preparing some artwork for print, and selected CMYK when I started the document in Ps.
When I save my artwork as a JPEG, and inspect the file in Finder (Get info) to double check it says 'Colour space - RGB' and 'colour profile - sRGB'.
Should I disregard this, or is the file not actually in CMYK ?
I checked the Document mode is CMYK and I checked the channels panel. I'm very confused.
Unless you're going to a specific and defined printing condition, NEVER start or work in CMYK.
You probably exported the CMYK doc which converted it to sRGB. But you don't want to be dealing with CMYK in the first place.
Keep this notification set to show "document profile". It's infinitely more useful than whatever it shows by default. I'd feel blindfolded without this:
Export As is not the same thing as Save As (a Copy).
Please set the Status Bar to »Document Profile« and post meaningful screenshots.
How exactly did you create the jpg (Save As, Export, …)?
