That's because it doesn't work correctly yet.

On GIMP commit df9e9e260990f827b40f9be05114897c571749a2,
the log message says:

    Disable layer masks on group layers for the time being

    Will enable it again when I fixed it properly, it's clearly a
    non-trivial problem that needs some thinking. Disabled for now because
    it causes crashes.

In short.. using that is risky and probably doesn't work quite the way
it should.
