Serato Options

Create crate folder playlists

Serato lets you drag tracks into a "parent" crate, like the one highlighted below.

parent crate

Lexicon does not support tracks inside a parent folder so after importing those tracks are not there. If you want these tracks to be imported, you can enable this option and Lexicon will create special playlists called _FolderTracks containing the parent crate tracks.

Why doesn't Lexicon support tracks inside a parent folder? Because it is a bad organizational practice. Your parent folder would become an unorganized mess and it's impossible to know which tracks belong there and which belong in a sub-playlist. It's always better to create a new playlist, even if you're going to use it as a messy/unorganized playlist on purpose.
