The TIB_Metadata stuff was written with object heirarchy in
mind. Triggers (I considered) to belong to tables (as do
constraints, indexes etc). So if a table is not exported its
triggers will not be exported.

This arrangement makes it easier to, for example, extract
sections of a database and still get all the objects you need
to make a complete section of the database. (For example you
can set up filters to select the tables you want, and only
the triggers, constraints and indexes for those tables would
be included by default.)

But, having said all that, there is a CodeOptions item that you
can turn on to have it ignore dependencies. Called, strangely
enough: coIgnoreDependencies

That option was intended primarily to allow extraction of
custom metadata table triggers, but should also solve your

See the IBO help file for TIB_DDLCodeOption, to get a
description of each of the code options.
