Is there any ArcPy function or classes which allow us to change map and layout metadata within ArcGIS Pro?

When the ArcGIS Pro Roadmap - February 2019 was released, I asked:

Is the equivalent of ArcMap's Metadata Toolset expected to appear in ArcGIS Pro 2.4?

The response from KKramer-esristaff was:

unfortunately the scripting capabilities will not be in 2.4, due to the previously stated priority of supporting the new version of ISO metadata standards. Scripting is still in the plan, but not for 2.4.


ArcGIS Pro now has a metadata object: https://pro.arcgis.com/en/pro-app/latest/arcpy/metadata/metadata-class.htm
