When I use a Post field and select the 'Set as Parent' option, the field value is not saved in the custom meta DB table.
I know this is the expected behavior as stated in the DOCs, yet I think it is essential to add an option that allows saving the value as a meta value too besides setting it as the parent post.
For example, many times I don't need the post data itself but just the metadata that is stored in a custom DB table. And in order to save/get the field value I would need to make an extra DB query!
Is there a way to save the field value using filters without making an extra DB query?
Also, please consider adding this option to the field asap.
