It's a FileBrowser app bug. I contacted the developer yesterday and they are taking a look at it. Since Transmit isn't stripping metadata, it isn't an iOS thing. Though automatic renaming of files once they get in Photos app is a photos app "feature".

There are a few ways to transfer photos to the Camera Roll using FileBrowser. If you choose the 'Share Image...' option from the FileBrowser image viewer, this will strip the metadata. Choose the 'Share File...' option from the file list menu button and the metadata will be preserved OK. Alternatively, use the multi file select feature to copy several files in one go to the Camera Roll and metadata will also be transferred OK. The image viewer share option bug is now on the to-fix list, thanks!
