My FLAC library is reasonably large (3,500 tracks), and was ripped at various times over the years.
The tracks vary pretty widely in volume, which makes playing them in random order a bit annoying.
Most of my listening is done using an iBasso player, which does not support adjusting volume from tags.
I see the 'Level Track Volume' on the Convert Format dialog. With that checked, when I convert to FLAC I was expecting the new file to be re-encoded with the appropriate track volume. Instead what I'm seeing is the track volume adjustment tag included in the output file.
Is there a way to get MMW to output the volume-corrected track instead? I understand and agree that this approach varies from the FLAC ideal of identical input and output files, but on the other hand the library needs to be listenable too...

No, you can't level lossless as then it won't be lossless anymore. You can only level if you convert to a lossy format (like MP3). This means you either choose a lossy format for players that can't read the volume tags or change to a player (like MediaMonkey for Android on most Android devices) that can read the tag.
