The issue I was running into was that for pointer fields in a struct the key was being recorded twice in the Metadata.Keys list. There are some cases where decodePtr will recurse into another call to decode which will add the field. However the outer decode call was unconditionally adding the field as well.

The updates in this PR change the behavior to only add the pointer fields name to the list of keys if no recursion was performed.
