Thanks I was able to find the reason:
RPM in Fedora 18 does not require the presence of the Group tag in the
spec file. If the tag is defined, it will be ignored.
Not ignored, it just became optional in rpm 4.6.0 in 2009. So its
somewhat old news. The group tag being obsolete (in that practically
nothing uses it for anything) is actually even older thing.
