the default behaviour (which quite a few people don't like) is to not mess with the tags unless you tell Winamp to do so i.e. via the edit file info dialogs. additionally ratings, playcounts and other values not stored in the id3 format will not be saved (there is an ini setting to allow for saving of ratings into the files but that is off by default).

as for having it happen on a prior version, i can only guess it was possibly with Winamp3 as that had a different design and philosophy on how it handled file metadata (though i really don't remember it intentionally messing with the tags).

so you should be safe and there aren't many plug-ins which will mess with the tags (unlike some of the ones i've seen for other players).
