WSUS Computer Groups

In WSUS console, I can see some computers showing up in the wrong group than the ones set up through Group Policy.
In order for the computer to be in the right group do I need to move it to the right group in WSUS(I amnot sure if this option is available) or just delete it and next time the policy refreshes it will show up in the right group?

My concern is some groups are set up in GPO to for downlaod and schedule the install and this will automatically reboot the computers if the updates require the reboot. I don't want this to happen, so I want the computers to showup in their right WSUS group.
OR unless if a computer that shows up in a wrong group in WSUS doesn't mean it could be rebooted if in AD it's in an OU (GPO) that doesn't say so


Thanks

what I meant is:

I set up GPOs linked to OUs for WSUS.
in the GPO for instance I put the Client side Target   Group1 the next GPO Group2,etc...
and Created the same group names in WSUS console.
So computers under each OU should showup in WSUS computer group that was stated in the GPO (CLient-side Targeting)for that OU . That's how it was suposed to be.
But in my case computers that were supposed to go to Group1 in WSUS console as setup in the respective GPO, I see them showing up in Group2 in WSUS console.
On a client that is going to the wrong group, under c:\windows open up the windowupdate.log and search for "target group:".  Is that the group that it is ending up in on WSUS?
