For Group objects which have a Policy in Active Roles affecting groupType, the Active Roles Web Interface will read and display the groupType which should be enforced by Policy, but not the actual groupType of the object.
For example, if groupType for all Groups within a particular Organizational Unit should be set to "8", making them Universal Distribution Groups, all Groups within that OU will display as such in the Web Interface, even Groups which were created outside of that OU and which have a different groupType.
This issue has been identified as a product defect and is being tracked as Defect ID TF00694000.
Confirm groupType in the Active Roles Console.
Waiting for fix in a future release of Active Roles.
