This is on Google Drive and I have tested with the latest beta and stable builds.
I have added a google group account with multiple service account members to shared folders and team drives. The service accounts are able to view all of the team drives as expected, but when you viewing the "shared with me" folders they see absolutely nothing. When I add a service account to a share from my drive
individually, it is then able to see it. But it doesn't seem to inherit the "shared with me" folders when the entire SA group is added. Is this expected behavior, do groups not inherit the "shared with me" folders?

Which beta did you try?
It is possible this commit helps which I merged 3 days ago...

drive: update API for teamdrive use - fixes #3348
I'm afraid I don't know the answer to that. What exactly are "google group accounts"? This might be a bug at google I suppose - worth checking the bugtracker:
I tried with beta v1.48.0-114-gd51a9709-beta
The Google groups I am referring to are available in Google Admin console under Directory -> Groups
I'll try to be more clear on use case and situation.
firstname.lastname@example.org has a folder on their personal drive and is the owner of a shared drive.
domain.com has created a group called
email@example.com and included 10 service accounts (serviceaccount1-10) in it
firstname.lastname@example.org shares the folder on their personal drive with
email@example.com shares the shared drive with
none of the service accounts list and directories with --drive-shared-with-me
all of the service accounts view the shared drive
firstname.lastname@example.org shares the shared folder with serviceaccount1
serviceaccount1 can now see the shared folder when using --drive-shared-with-me, but only serviceaccount1
So you see, groups seem to view shared drives fine when shared with them but not shared folders.
Here is some additional interesting behavior, though. All the above is still in effect.
email@example.com, now with 11 members (service accounts and 1 user)
firstname.lastname@example.org looks under "shared with me" in either rclone or webui, nothing appears there.
email@example.com sends the folder ID for the folder that was shared
firstname.lastname@example.org can access the shared folder via direct link or configuring an rclone mount with root_folder_id
Anyway this may not be a big, and the workaround is to make a remote for it or use --drive-root-folder-id, but it is strange.
Sorry for the bad formatting... the site would only let me post 2 "links", and counted any
domain.com as a link.

Thanks for the detailed explanation.
I think this must be some strangeness in the google service account implementation - I don't think anything rclone is doing could affect this (but I could be wrong!).
OK, well at least there is a work-around!
In general I'm not that happy with the
--drive-shared-with-me flag, but I haven't found a better alternative yet!
You can put stuff in backquotes
this is not a link google.com.
I'll edit your post to put the dots back in!
