Not seeing the asset category when the buyer chooses an image from assets

I'm selecting an asset category that I'd like to be available to the user when they are in the template. I have it set so they can upload an image of their own, or select from assets. I've put in the asset category name, but when I go to the site and test the product, the defined asset category does not seem to be defined. What should occur when an asset category is defined? and is this template behaving correctly?

When the initial asset category is set, and then the user opens the asset dropdown, the category tree should be set to start in that asset category. It sounds like the template is behaving correctly.
