although this doesnt answer your question, make sure you are using v3.4 before tagging the wave files as i recall older MB versions had an issue with saving tags to wav files

I am running Version: 3.4.7764
Do you know if I run tagging in Musicbee if it writes the tags to the actual files
or if it just keeps it in a database in Musicbee?

Look at it in Tag Inspector (right-click, Edit, hit the tab for Tag Inspector).   To double-check outside of MusicBee what tags are actually written to the file, you can use a 3rd party tagger like Mp3tag or Kid3.  Google 'em.  Kid3 will show and edit RIFF tags if they exist (or whatever other tag type there may be present).

Roughly speaking:
Regular tags are saved in the files.
Custom tags you can decide for yourself.
Statistics such as playcount in the library.

You can use the Tag Editor to see what tags are actually in the file.

Also note that if tagging is of essential importance, the general opinion and recommendation here is not to use wav but flac.
