Among dozens of Applications folders in my $UserBaseDirectory, many have associated palettes in their own FrontEnd/Palettes subfolders.

A couple have multiple palettes, grouped in their folder tree as follows:

$UserBaseDirectory/Applications/TheAppName/FrontEnd/Palettes/TheAppName/palette1

$UserBaseDirectory/Applications/TheAppName/FrontEnd/Palettes/TheAppName/palette2

Then in the drop-down Palettes menu I see, before all other app's single menu entries, an entry, TheAppName; when I click that item, I get a fly-out menu with the names of the individual palettes Palette1, Palette2. (Sorry, I cannot seem to catch this in a screenshot.)

Does this happen automatically, or is there some option in those palettes that does this?

Those palettes are gathered under a common item 'TheAppName' because this is the structure FE finds in your Applications/TheAppName/FrontEnd/Palettes/...

Was it Palettes/palette2 and you would see a flat list next to other items in the menu.

There is one related option though: MenuSortingValue. If affects the order of e.g. palettes in the menu or their presence at all.
