Issue

Using MailStream Plus to generate the Postage Statement for the Periodical Flats mailing.
 
The MSRPQL00 - USPS Qualification Report shows there are 24 Outside County bundles:

This line is not showing up on the 3541 with any values filled in.
 

Cause

If your job has the xx INF MDMFDD subkeyword present and a value in the Mail Container charge method, you could be sending this value to a different piece id code.

This job had-
*...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....
RP INF                     MDMFDD 01/16/2017 R 2 PIECEID

These are the options for position 48 (where the '2' is)

Periodicals Mail Container charge method.
Format: M
0 No publications in mailing.
1 Charge all to a third party.
2 Charge all to the P ATTR code defined below.
3 or blank Proportion charges to each piece (default)
 
For this job the 2 in position 48 is equivalent to:
2 Charge all to the P ATTR code defined, which is the "PIECEID" string value in 50-56.
 
In this job the P ATTR has a blank Piece ID in positions 14-22.
*...+....1....+....2....+....3....+....4....+....5....+....6....

P ATTR 080 1           37.84 25.00 11.40 12.00       27.66 R    Y     Y
 
So the value 'PIECEID' in position 50 of the MDMFDD does not match to this job's P ATTR.  That is why the container charge was blank.
 

Resolution

UPDATED: March 13, 2019
Once the 2 was removed in position 48 of the RP INF MDMFDD parameter, then the Part D was populated:
