I know that you have to be added to a 'member' group for the site to show within the Membership tab of My Site.

However, if you have many permission groups on a site, does the Membership tab only show users who were added to the original 'members' group or will it also show users who have been added to other permission groups which have a 'contribute' permission level set on the same site?

Thanks for your help Jane

Based on this answer by PirateEric♦,

If it's anything like 2007, the membership aspect of My Sites is worthless. In 2007, it required that you explicitly be entered into the Members group in a site/site collection. Anything higher (like owners or designers) you didn't show up. Anything lower (like Visitors) you did not show up. If you were given direct permissions you did not show up.

If you were in an AD group that is added to the sharepoint members group, you will not get a membership entry on the mysite. Only the direct add of the user account DOMAIN\username will fill the membership, if added to the sharepoint members group.

How does Membership show in Mysite - SharePoint 2010?

does the Membership tab only show users who were added to the original 'members' group or will it also show users who have been added to other permission groups which have a 'contribute' permission level set on the same site?

It will only show users who were added to Members group.

Also,

You might also notice that Security Group Memberships are not shown. They are, however, displayed in the Newsfeed:
