I assume with groups you mean address lists.
SOGo and therfore SOGo Connector too, does not yet support vCard V4.
In vCard V4 are address lists defined in a standard.
So SOGo Connector currently uses a propriatary format for these address

I don't think this will work with any other CardDAV-Server except SOGo.

vCard V4 support is planned, but not very high on the priority list.
See this Bug
