I store Apple Music downloads on my Buffalo Linkstation NAS Library but they only display in Apple Music. Any way around this?

No. Downloads that are not purchased outright are DRM copy protected, and Apple doesn't allow their playback on third party hardware. Same with Spotify and others. You have to stream them from the server.
Oh, I thought paying the monthly subscription meant that I could own the downloads. When I point iTunes to my NAS, it plays the downloads just fine
No, if the subscription lapses, the DRM kicks in and you wont be able to play them anymore. That's different from buying them outright through iTunes.
