mp3 metadata reading is handled by the id3demux element, which is built
with the gstreamer mad plugin. The ffmpeg mp3 plugin probably can't read
tags, thus it's not surprising it doesn't use the helper functions from
gstid3tag. To get the mad plugin to build, you need libmad to be
installed (and its development headers). If it's installed, it should
have priority over the ffmpeg mp3 stuff.

Hope that helps,
