It is not.
Community Groups are groups that *anyone* can start about a topic related to the Web :) You do not need to be a W3C Member, to pay anything, etc. You just need to open a public W3C [account], and be a bunch of motivated and open ;) people to discuss about a topic of interests.
W3C gives the platform for free. In the case of Markdown, it means:
* Home page
* Archived mailing-lists
* A wiki
* An irc channel
That said if the community group has been successful, published a document, etc. There might be interests from the W3C Members to make it on W3C Rec track and then go into the patent policy dance, etc.
