Tags on AAC files not applied after being saved

Not sure whether this is a bug but this issue hasn't happened in the past when I've done this and my process hasn't changed as far as I know.

I suggest wrapping those files in an MP4 container, so that you can make use of the tagging capabilities of this format.
