The Additional Tagging and Reporting Tools plugin can do this, but proceed with caution until you're sure you understand what it's doing

I expect the plugin would only help if you had another field that you could derive the sub-genre from.
There isnt anything built into musicbee to retrieve sub-genres

In your mind, where would these sub-genres come from?

Are you aware of MusicBee's genre category feature? It's sort of the opposite of what you want, but you might be able to use it for your purposes, putting your sub genres in the genre field and the parent genres as categories.

putting your sub genres in the genre field and the parent genres as categories.
Sort of what I do with meta from discogs.
Genre goes to 'Genre Catergories'
Style goes to 'Genre'

So do you have Genre Categories set up as a custom tag or is there already a tag for that?
