They seem like a good fit for Wastri.
I've thought the same thing. Lawful evil "elitist bigot" frog monks who dominate "the Vast Swamp": they seem tailor-made for Wastri, and a better fit for the Greyhawk than the Realms. They almost feel like a creature that was developed with Greyhawk in mind and stuck into the Realms for want of a Greyhawk-specific book to put them in. Of course, Monsters of Faerun includes many generic D&D creatures like aarakocra and perytons as well as Realms-specific monsters.
They also fit Wastri better than bullywugs do, though the friction between Wastri's goals and the bullywugs' traditions (and the friction between independent bullywugs and elitist sivs attempting to control them) can make for good roleplaying too.
Who else was surprised to see grungs (originally from Greyhawk Adventures) appear in Volo's Guide to Monsters? That book had a pretty good take on them, too.
