Currently synchronization will match schema names by case. That means if a schema has upper case letters and server is case insensitive, the schema will be created in lowercase during fwd engineering. Future synchronizations will not recognize both schemas as being the same.

This issue is also reported as a comment in bug #54748

How to repeat:
Create schema with uppercase name.
Forward engineer to server in Windows

Fixed as of 5.2.37:

+        The Forward engineering feature now preserves case for schema
+        names, even on case-insensitive systems. Before it would create
+        lowercase variants of the schema names on these systems.
