You cannot check SharePoint group membership using JSON formatting.

setValue can only be used to update the list item with the field values provided inside actionInput.

Documentation: JSON formatting syntax reference

Update (Additional info):

Using JSON formatting, you can check if user belong to a "Person or Group" column from same SharePoint list. Check below samples as reference for this:

  1. Highlight the current user
  2. Highlight the current user - multi-person-currentuser
