I've been thinking all day that I had something misconfigured, but it looks like I've found an issue with v6.5.2.
The "latex input:" metadata command appears to be ignored. Below I am using the sample.txt file from the github gallery.

 benson@Bensons-MBP  ””/sandbox  multimarkdown --v | grep 6
MultiMarkdown 6 v6.5.2

 benson@Bensons-MBP  ””/sandbox  multimarkdown -t latex sample.txt | grep input

But when I try the same thing with v5.4.0 I get this

benson@Bensons-MBP  ””/sandbox  multimarkdown --v | grep 5
MultiMarkdown version 5.4.0
 benson@Bensons-MBP  ””/sandbox  multimarkdown -t latex sample.txt | grep input

    latex header:
    latex begin:

    is how it works now

    how do you get those older versions of MMD anyway?

    You can get old versions from github -- some by downloading, others can be compiled.
