Many have reported that the given feature has now disappeared for some of the users. It was reported that the disappearance of auto-organizing categories appears to be affecting some of the users, which could become more widespread in time. As per the report of 9to5Google, this issue was caused to all the categories like-  All, Personal, and Business. All the categories are chipped under the search bar to disappear as if the auto-organising feature has been disabled. 

The ‘View messages by category’ will toggle and the option to select the ‘Primary category view’ is no longer available in the Message Organisation section of Google Messages' settings. However, the "Auto-delete OTPs after 24 hours" feature is still there on the platform at present.
