CR uses DB to store custom values. There is no way to put them into ComicInfo.xml.

The custom valúes is a field in the xml that is stored in the db, like others fields like series or group series,
Why the Custom valúes could't be stored in the xml file?

I convert all my comics to cbz format Because i want the info is stored in the comic, and in this way if something hapend with the dB, i can reconstruct with the info stored in the xml file of earth comic.

There are some values that are considered database specific rather than being tied to a specific book - this is stuff like read status, tags, and - yup - custom values. They're not written to the book file because they wouldn't necessarily make sense in somebody else's library. This is a design decision that cYo made a while back and has been discussed elsewhere. (Note that I'm not disagreeing with you, but this is how it's set up)
