[X] Genre tag from iTunes not updating

If I change a genre in iTunes and drag the mp3 to mp3tag it has the wrong string.

However, if I tag in mp3tag, save the file, the tag then updates in iTunes as it should.

The mappings are the same so I assume this is a bug?

Or itunes writes the modification only to its database, but leaves the file as it its. (Because how should MP3tag know what is stored in a file other than the actual tag information? There would have to be a second genre tag or something to store the old and the new information)
Could you check the modification data of such a file?

Found out what happened!

I accidentally forgot to remove writing APEv2 to the tags after helping a member on the forum with something which is a quite a while ago.

Screenshot of my settings if anyone come across the same problem. This was the last thing I thought of.

iTunes does write to the tags.

Steps to resolve same issue.
Drag mp3s to mp3tag.
Use settings in screenshot above.
Remove tags. CTRL+R
Save. CTRL+S
Tags reappear as in iTunes
