If the ID3 genre string in a local CDDB database does not match one of the genres in the drop-down list in grip, it appears to be ignored. The ID3 tag written to the ripped file seems to be the one used previously. Similarly for the %G token when forming file names.
For example, I have CDs with genre set to "Brass" and "Flamenco" in my .cddb directory. I have to go in and edit their ID3 tags after ripping them as they get set to "Folk".
