Since the last few versions of v3.2 (currently v3.2.6721), when I do a volume analysis on FLAC files, MusicBee adds a nameless tag with a value of "16".

That's the Bit Depth.  MusicBee adds this value now when scanning lossless files.  Check this forum thread for display options:

This version will no longer write the unnecessary info for new files. You would need to manually delete using mp3tag if you want to remove existing ones

Thanks for the report, theG!
Just cleared up the field using mp3tag. In my collection, it first started with albums analyzed in May 11. It might have started 2 days earlier, but albums in May 8 were clear.
Open those tracks in mp3tag> select all and right click> Extended tags> find a blank field at the top and remove it> save.

[edit] No, it was earlier than that. It first started in May 3.
