Thanks for your inputs.
Comparison using == just comes out of me because of my coding style.
Since the variable name PLTE_present is self-explanatory that it is of type boolean I also feel from verbose perspective we should use ! operator.
I have updated the code to reflect the same.
Apart from verbose perspective is there anything different in Java between using == & ! in this case. Please provide your inputs as it would be helpful in future changes.
Please find updated webrev for review:

It looks fine, but I wonder why
metadata.PLTE_present == false
is used instead of

> Issue : When we try to read PNG image with color type as PNG_COLOR_PALETTE in IHDR header but missing the required PLTE chunk we throw NullPointerException.
> Root cause : We finish reading metadata but when we try to read image information and access palette related data it throws NPE as palette related data is not initialized/not present.
> Solution : PNG specification mandates that if color type present in IHDR is PNG_COLOR_PALETTE(type 3), PLTE chunk should appear before the first IDAT chunk. So while reading metadata itself we should verify the same and if required PLTE chunk is absent we should throw proper IIOException instead of allowing the code to continue further and throw NPE while trying to access palette information.
