I can provide other details if needed.

Did you try to use "Tagging->Reload info from files" after update to beta 8?

I haven't, and right click -> Tagging does not have "reload info from files" option. The entries are:
- Get tags from freedb
- Sanitize tags
- (separator)
- Attach pictures
- Batch attach pictures
- Remove pictures
- Remove all pictures

But I tried a similar option by:
1. right click a track to open properties
2. open Tools at the lower left corner
3. use "Reload info"
and this refreshes tags with correct values!

Maybe future betas should do this automatically? (unless there is a good reason to not to do so)

Ah, so it is hidden by default. To make hidden options to appear you can use use Shift+Right click

Bug with tags parsing was inroduced in beta 7 and fixed in beta 8.
But not re-reading tags from files when re-adding them to playlist seems to be yet another bug (or new feature?) - https://hydrogenaud.io/index.php/topic,122970.0.html
