What happens to social groups when importing from vB 3.8?

I was looking over Paul M's vB 4 importer and noticed one of its extra features was the import of vBulletin's Social Groups. How does the vB 3.8 -> XF importer handle them? Are they simply left behind? What about user's albums?

When I last ran the importer (several months ago), these were the steps.
I don't think that has changed, although I will need to double check by running a test import.

Anything which isn't listed isn't imported.

membergroups, visitor messages, galleries, and group discussions. It all of that is going to be lost, the only think I will miss would be membergroups and their content.

I have about 200 membergroups and they are kind of active, so I'd appreciate a workaround.

I thought "visitor messages" were covered under the "profile comments"?
