I said I *suspect*. What do I know. With your newest explanation, that
might not even be the case at all.

One might now even suspect that your car's reader does some sort of
caching. (Based on what? File names?) So what happens if you put back
the original files? Does it still see the new tags?

That's why I suggested:
- using some tool which can give an authoritive view of *all* contained
  tags (and not rely on ffmpeg, the conversion tool, and the car player
  to give you all your information);
- using a dedicated tool made for tags.
