Odd.  Well, running the command groups <username> should show it.

For example, if you, as user greatscott are the user that logs on and
runs VirtualBox or VBoxManage

groups greatscott

That should show the groups of the user greatscott.

Yeah. You log onto Debian as greatscott as one does.  (Ok, I admit, most of
you, even after reading my posts, may not have created that user name.)

Then, as root or using sudo for root privilege, on the Debian host

usermod -a -G vboxusers greatscott
