[Solved] ReplayGain tags case sensitivity issue

I ran into the following problem:
There are m4a files (RG analysed in another program) that already contain ReplayGain tags, and the name of these tags is lowercase (for example, replaygain_track_gain). When analyzing these tracks, beaTunes adds its uppercase tags, that is, now I have two sets of RG tags in these files (at the same time replaygain_track_gain and REPLAYGAIN_TRACK_GAIN, for example).
If I understand everything correctly, tag can be written in any register, and the old tag should be overwritten in any case?

OS X 10.15.1, beaTunes 5.2.0, Music.app library mode, Embed non-Music.app fields enabled, Force overwriting of fields enabled.
