    The Preset you mentioned is actually named Copy Originals to Desktop. (Italics mine.) That is why you see the option to Create ON1 Sidecar. Whenever you set the File Type option to Original you will see that option.

    By default Photo RAW does not create the sidecar when the Export is performed. I exported a jpeg at midnight last night and there is no sidecar file to go with it. The sidecar gets created at some later time. I have seen them in my Exports folder too. Only after they've sat there for a while. I'm not sure what triggers its creation.

    Ah ha! I just got it to create one. All I did is click in one of the Metadata fields. I did not make any changes of any kind. I clicked in a field then pressed the Tab key. That wasn't enough to create the file though. It was when I returned to the Grid view and changed the file selection that the sidecar was created.
