I did get it to work on a single layer. If you add a layer mask onto a group, it will not record the alt/option + click. I realized that for what I was trying to accomplish, I did not need the group. I recorded my action and it worked as expected. Thanks for the reply.
Just to mention that you can record step with mask added to layer then to drag/duplicate that step where you need it in action, there is no difference between step recorded with mask atached to layer or group, step is exactly the same.
