Back to Preferences > General > When Scaling

[ x ] Apply to Content

That will scale the text as well. The percentages you are scaling all contents of the group will still show their new scaling percentages. The text in the text frame will be scaled and when selected is showing its scaling as well in the form:

 

Original point size ( new point size )

Note:

If you want to scale all elements of the group with that text frame and you do NOT want to scale the text:

Select the group with the Direct Selection Tool instead of the Selection Tool.

 

Hm.

Perhaps you did exactly that when scaling the group did not scaling the text?

Use the Selection Tool instead of the Direct Selection Tool to select the group before scaling.
