 > Oh yes, actual frame metadata would be great if someone was getting
 pictures from an actual camera. It is not my actual use case though, but
 whoever handles this enhancement could go way past my personal

 This works with current FFmpeg.

 > My current use case is that I made a script that captures a screenshot
 of my desktop every n seconds.

 with FFMPEG.

 This sounds as if it would be simpler to use ffmpeg for the screen

 Adding the current file name as frame metadata should fix your problem.
