Hmm, any ideas of potential causes? Are there any conditions that must be met for it to save? If so, I'm not fulfilling them.

I played three very short tracks (3-5 sec each), waited a few minutes, exited MusicBee properly at 16:26. MusicBeeLibrary.mbl saved at 16:26, nothing lost.
Next, I played three other similar tracks, waited for >20 minutes with the music paused/not touching MusicBee. At 16:58 the library was still last modified 16:26, so as expected the plays were lost when forcibly exiting MusicBee.

update to the patch version as i can see if you just play songs, the database flush is not triggered

The latest 3.3 patch version (3.3.6973) indeed saves the library periodically! Awesome, thanks.
Settings changes also seem to save at once, however panel customizations seem to only save on exit. That's unlikely to be a big issue for many, though.
