Currently playlists are stored in a localstorage (sqlite) database in ~/.local/share/com.ubuntu.music/Databases. It is a pretty simple table layout and if you wrote scripts, for example in Python, it would be simple to import/export.

However in the future once bug 1510225 has been fixed, we hope to move to using a m3u format internally for the playlists, then allowing for easy import/export, also note that currently the music app should only play local urls and not networked ones as it assumes Mediascanner can find the file.

Can you help with this problem?
