Problem with tag mappings

Hello,

Let's say that I have a FLAC file with the following tags:

TITLESORT = a
ALBUMSORT = b
ALBUMARTISTSORT = c
ARTISTSORT = d

Now I want to convert this file to a MP3 file using foobar2000 converter.
The expected behavior would be that the tags would map as the following (according to this article in the wiki):

TITLESORT ->  TITLESORTORDER / TSOT
ALBUMSORT ->  ALBUMSORTORDER / TSOA
ALBUMARTISTSORT -> ALBUMARTISTSORTORDER / TSO2
ARTISTSORT -> ARTISTSORTORDER / TSOP

But instead I get the following tags in the new file:

TITLESORT -> TXXX/TITLESORT
ALBUMSORT -> TXXX/ALBUMSORT
ALBUMARTISTSORT -> TXXX/ALBUMARTISTSORT
ARTISTSORT -> TXXX/ARTISTSORT

As it seems the tags are remain unchanged.

Is this bug or normal behavior of the built-in file converter?
Is there is a way to map the tags correctly when converting?

I'm using version 1.5.2 of foobar2000.

Thanks.

Good thing I checked to see if this had been posted before, cuz that's why I'm here.
Yes, it's mapped wrong. I've been trying to work with the error for years but it would be nice to not have to have separate fields bases on file type.
I marked the area that is relevant to this post.
Hope this helps,
Cheers!
