Obviously the "RANDOMLY_PLAYING" was supposed to be "PLAYING_RANDOMLY".

the current version seems to only make use of "PLAYING" and "NOW_PLAYING"
strings in the playback screen. "PLAYING_RANDOMLY" is not requested anywhere
except when pressing play from the home menu with shuffle mode on. This is just
the short display message for feedback on the play button.

So, its not something off with the custom strings, so much as it being how the
code is written. Following from the code, you are seeing the string that you
shoudl see. Whether or not the code should be that way, is another thing. I
can certainly see a point for not having 'Now Playing shuffled' consuming the
bulk of the first line. However, when or why it changed, I dont recall.
