I suspect what may be happening is that pa updates its own database but not the tags on the track itself. This would explain why you see it in pa and not in others. Andre can probably provide a definitive answer.

If I take a file that has a genre on pc and change it with pa then open the file on a pc it has no genre at all but pa still recognized the change...I share my music on my pc with my phone through onedrive and make genre changes as I listen with pa so I need changes to be saved correctly or it don't do any good to change it in pa

On a pc, use a neat little utility called FileTagSleuth, This is able to read ID2 and Id1 tags. This should clearly show the values of "genre". Alternatively, on android there are many mp3 taggers which would also help. I use audiotagger to check/update tags. Experiment with pa and check with one of these tag utilities to see if the value(s) have changed.
