I converted a shapefile to kml using ogr2ogr. Glancing at the output, it looks correct -- it has a <Schema ...> and each <ExtendedData> references the schema (I uploaded a snippet here).

However, when I open the kml in QGIS and select "View attribute table", I only see a default list of attributes (Name, description, timestamp, begin...). Is this a limitation of the KML reader, or an error in the file?
