All my artwork is embedded and MB has no issue in displaying this.  However, not all this artwork is displayed in other devices and/or programs and I think I’ve established that this is maybe due to no value being assigned to ‘picture type’ – that’s to say, in certain cases this field doesn’t contain ‘Album Cover’ etc.

I know it’s possible to view this field in mp3tag with the syntax %_cover_type%, can it also be displayed in MB?  I have incidentally used the Album Artwork Manager, but as far as I can tell this utility doesn’t display this info.

no its not currently possible. Create a wishlist request if its important to you as it could be added to the Album Artwork manager

You can see this information in MusicBee if you right-click the file, choose "Edit", and then hit the "Artwork" tab.  The "Picture Type" box next to the artwork then will show you what type is in the file.  I tested this by adding artwork to a file in an external tagger (Kid3) as type "Leaflet Page", and it shows correctly as that type in the above dialog after re-scanning the file.
