One user of my plugin reported me that for some files extensions the color of image in output changed. I'm using processing with gdal clip by extend (link).
After investigation it appears that getFormatShortNameFromFilename return 'GTiff' when it should be 'EHdr' with a file.bil. This is due to getSupportedRasters where the if DMD_EXTENSION in metadata return false. I was wondering why DMD_EXTENSION isn't in the wrapper meta, because when I run the command in a shell (gdalwarp -of EHdr ...) it's perfectly working.

Is that normal ? Should it be fixed ?
