    In Arcmap, when changing the data source of a map layer, any text I had in the description or credits remains. 

     

    In Pro, when changing the data source of a map layer, whatever metadata is attached to the new data source populates the metadata, over writing what ever text I had previously put in there. While a feature class may have metadata, often, the way I use a layer in a map evokes a requirement for me to have to offer a different explanation of how that layer is presented in the map, which is why the "Sticky" description attribute in an ArcMap layer is useful.
