iTunes/Apple did some weird switching a while back, where grouping and work fields were changed. Is it possible the value you are looking for is now in work?
Also, I noticed that you are using a folder-based library. Is this for a particular reason? Typically, when also using iTunes/Music, an iTunes/Music-based library works much better, because there is a much tighter integration.

Thanks for your most recent email. The key/grouping problem has only
arisen in the past week and I do not think either beaTunes or
iTunes/Music has been modified. That is why it is something of a mystery.
Also, I am confused about a folder-based library. If I am using this
method it is not purposely. Is there a link you can send me to
understand the situation? Thanks for your understanding.

No, but I did upgrade a while ago. I attach a screen shot to show you
the problem. Up until last week I loaded the songs into Music and then
ran beaTunes which gave me the key. I then synched the two and the key
showed up in grouping in Music as you can see from the screenshot.
You should switch to using a Music-based library. To do so, open the File menu, choose New library and choose Music-based. After you have created the new library, make sure that you have embedding turned on. That's an option in the beaTunes general preferences.
Then re-run the plugin on the desired tracks.
Note that you may have to allow beaTunes to remote control the Music.app via AppleScript (there might be a dialog that pops up). This is necessary to communicate the new values.
