This has never been fixed, and likely never will. Still a maximum of 400 files in an M3U playlist file, and still a single M3U playlist file can only refer to a music file stored on the same storage where the M3U playlist file itself is also stored.

You must simply decide for yourself whether or not this restriction and limitation is acceptable, or what alternative workaround compromise you can live with (from the several that are available), that gives you the most benefit and the least downside... depending on how you want to use a "playlist".

Personally, I don't use "genre" and don't care about it. So using it as a "genre-playlist" has all the benefits I want and none of the downsides. I don't care that a given music file can only be in one "genre-playlist" since there is only one "genre" tag field per music file. The ability to have no limit on number (up to the J3 max of 16,000 files) and can reference music files on both internal and external storage, AND can be maintained on the PC with MP3Tag... these are all positives for me.

I see no negatives in "genre-playlist", especially since I have only one of these: FLAC, with my playback control set to "random/shuffle". Works perfectly for me.
