A product description that contains HTML code generated by Page Builder or another HTML editor is always displayed in the meta description, and there is no way to set it to empty.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to Admin > Content > Block and create a new block with any content.
  2. Go to Admin > Catalog > Product and create a new product. Set the meta description to empty.
  3. Add the block created above using Page Builder in the Content tab and save the product.
  4. Open the product on the storefront and check its doc element meta name = "description".

The meta description is empty.
