It does not matter which folder the ebook is in. What matters is the internal metadata tag. The advise to use [EBOK] as the Personal Doc Tag is wrong, in the sense that whatever that tag is set to the output is PDOC if that tag is present in the ebook entry. So [EBOK] only works because you don't have [EBOK] as a tag. The best way to get an ebook into the Books app is to set Preferences => Conversion => Output Options => Mobi Output => Personal Doc Tag to blank (empty) and do a MOBI to MOBI conversion.

An alternative strategy is to force them into the Docs app. Do this by setting Preferences => Conversion => Output Options => Mobi Output => Personal Doc Tag to whatever you want ([PDOC] is the default, but I have used z because it is short and at the end of the alphabet) and then use Edit Metadata -> Edit metadata in Bulk to add this tag to all the ebooks you want in Docs. Finally do a MOBI to MOBI conversion on all these ebooks. When they are copied to your Fire they will be in Docs.
