There is a release button on every individual project too - what

Apart from the last statement, yes, I believe so.

Correct - you would release them using the individual one. However  
groups are usually formed by a reactor of more closely related builds.  
In truth, plugins doesn't follow the best practice because their trunk  
and tags are at a different level to the release.
