Environment: SharePoint online with Modern libraries

 

I am trying to move document from one document library to another by using "Move to" function available in modern experience for lists and libraries.

In my document library i am having few columns which are managed metadata. When document moved to different document library then it is moving the document with properties like Lookup, Choice, single line of text values but except Managed Metadata column values.  

Is there any limitation to Move functionality?

But same thing is working perfectly if I do "Copy to" functionality. 

 

How I can retain the Termstore values when I do the Move to functionality?

This happens to us occasionally which is hard to know why this is happening. Source library and destination library have same Content Types that most of them have some fields of managed metadata type.

 Anybody knows what causes this? I will appreciate if I can get any related blogs or links!
