It seems not.
In my 2012, USB operation appears to be identical to what I've seen described earlier in this thread. There is no shuffle (a future feature I'm sure, rather than a bug), and apparently no use of MP3 metadata.
I've organized a 512MB thumb drive into
root > artist > album > song and
root > podcast > episode
This works well enough, but since metadata is not used, there is no indication of how long a track might be. For podcasts, a "song" is often >30 minutes. There doesn't seem to be a way to fast-forward or back-up within a song. Another future feature for a very stupid player I'm afraid.
When I plugged my android phone into the USB port, I was expecting only to be able to charge the battery, but I got more. The file structure containing MP3s was read out and displayed/played just like the thumbdrive.
