You're right. The reason is, that the description.ext resides inside of .pbo stored on Steam Workshop. Steam doesn't allow to access the insides of the .pbo, so to display at least some information we decided to display Steam's metadata (mission name, author, description and picture). There exist certain possibilities for improvement of this behavior and will be investigated.
