Frontmatter with aliases displays twice when "show frontmatter" is on

Steps to reproduce

In the YAML frontmatter of a note, add an alias. In Settings > Editor, turn on “Show frontmatter”.

Expected result

I expect to see a code block showing the frontmatter with an alias.

Actual result

I see the “show frontmatter” codeblock, as well as a “Metadata” panel with aliases.

Additional information

Here is a screenshot of what I mean:


I understand that this may not be undesirable for everyone. Also, it would require not displaying the metadata panel depending on whether the “show frontmatter” setting is on, and whether or not the frontmatter has aliases.
