If it's a club ride with a small group at a rest stop, we'll all be watching out for each others stuff, but I take my valuables (keys, wallet, cell phone, camera) with me.
If it's a big group ride and I'm in the midst of the group, I'm comfortable leaving my bike for a few minutes but I still take my valuables.
If there are civilians (non-riders) around I might lock up, especially if I'm near the edge of the group.
I ride a mix of city and country. DC, Baltimore, New York City. In several dozen group rides I've never had my bike messed with.
Have to mention that I have an older, not too expensive bike, that is not a high target item. If I had a multi-$1000 model, I might act differently.
