As far as I'm aware the media kind setting for audiobook isn't embedded anywhere in the tag, but if iTunes "knows" it can't update the tag (perhaps because it is marked as read-only or being accessed via an account without write access) then it may not change the media kind either. What happens if you try to change a single track? Are the options greyed out? If so, check your permissions. Both your account (or EVERYONE) and SYSTEM should have full access.
i'm having the same exact problem with iTunes 10.1.1.4 on Windows XP SP3.
i can change the media kind of the individual mp3s, but when i go into the Books section, and do a Get Info on the compilation, it just says "Music". the first time i set this to "Audiobook" and sync my iphone, the books will sync and show up in the Audiobooks section of my iPhone's iPod app, but the next time i sync, the audiobooks are gone. In order to have them sync again, I have to once again set the compilation to "Audiobook" by doing a Get Info on the compilation in the Books section of iTunes.
i am experiencing the exact same issue as JonFleming. i want to be able to have the media kind stay as "Audiobook". how do i do this? i tried looking at the log files for iTunes, but found nothing.
