It can, though it is not configured to do so by default.  I use this for
the flac encoder "command line" and it works well for me:

-V -o %m %w -T "ARTIST=%A" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%t" -T "ALBUM=%d" -T

I wrote a quick and dirty program at one point that tried to determine
what an untagged FLAC file was by using musicbrainz and then added the

If you're referring to my FLAC work, that stuff should definitely be in
0.5.3 already.  I don't know what would cause the problems the original

WRT to the mime type; I've argued for a while that FLAC should be
