Sidecar XMP file are not supported for JPEG files, so I'm confused as to what you are talking about. Adobe has always embedded the XMP data INSIDE the JPEG files, never in a sidecar file.
You must be much more specific with exactly what you are trying to do and how you are doing it.
I edited a jpg in ACR, then ran an action on it, but when the action opened the file, it did so as unedited.
I ran the action from Bridge > Tools > Photoshop > Batch
Changes made to JPEG images in ACR are stored as metadata within the JPEG image. Those changes will not be read directly in Photoshop. It will be necessary for you to modify your bridge preferences and make sure you have selected "Prefer Camera Raw for JPEG..." Then I think your action will work properly. In your batch setup you need to make sure you check the Override File Open Commands... And then they should be opened through ACR without displaying Camera Raw.
Worked a treat.
