Does MXML have this kind of note head?

If it doesn't, then there is no way to export this info to it and this is not a MuseScore bug but a limitation of MXML; if it does, then this is a bug.


Currently the MusicXML exporter does not support the note head type "brevis head alt", which explains the observed behaviour. I am not sure if this notehead type is supported, as the spec is not completely clear. Will have to investigate.
