WSUS 3.0 Clients do not display in correct WSUS target group

Multiple clients are not sorted into proper WSUS target groups.  Group targeting is enabled via Group Policy.  I have verified that GP is applying correctly to the machines in question.  Some of the machines MAY be based on an image (they were in place before I came on board).  The clients DO communicate with the WSUS server and pull updates.  I have modified the registry on the machines but the changes are reset after reboot OR update session. Attached is a sample from the %windir%\WindowsUpdate.log of one of the machines.
