Provided the group with backgroundBehavior exists on the card from which a
new card is created.

If I have a group A on cd 1 which has backgroundBehavior set to true, and a
group B on cd 2 with its backgroundBehavior set to true, when I am on cd 1
and create a new card (a new cd 2) it will have group A on it, but not group
B.  When I go to cd 3 (which was cd 2 and contains group B) and create a new
card, cd 4 (the new card) will contain group B, but not group A.
