This is a follow-up to my previous question Proper way to include unnumbered chapters in a per chapter bibliography using biblatex.

The solution proposed by Audrey breaks when I use the titlesec package to modify the chapter headings. Here's a MWE:

\documentclass{book}


\usepackage{titlesec}           
\usepackage{titletoc}

\setcounter{tocdepth}{3}

\usepackage[style = phys,%
            sorting=none,%
            backend=biber,%
            style=numeric,%
            hyperref=auto,%
            backref = true,%
            refsection=chapter,%
%           citereset=chapter,%
            dateabbrev=false,%
            urldate=comp]{biblatex}

\usepackage{nameref}

\makeatletter
% Extend biblatex's \chapter patch to \chapter*
\def\blx@refpatch@chapter#1{%
  \ifundef\chapter
    {\blx@err@nodocdiv{chapter}}
    {\pretocmd\@makechapterhead
       {#1}{}{\blx@err@patch{\string\@makechapterhead}}%
     \pretocmd\@makeschapterhead
       {#1}{}{\blx@err@patch{\string\@makeschapterhead}}}}
% Save data for bibliography titles
\apptocmd\@makechapterhead
  {\csdef{subbib:\therefsection}{%
     Chapter~\ref{refsection:\therefsection} - \nameref{refsection:\therefsection}}}{}{}
\apptocmd\@makeschapterhead
  {\csdef{subbib:\therefsection}{%
     \nameref{refsection:\therefsection}}}{}{}

\makeatother

\defbibheading{subbibliography}{%
  \section*{References for \csuse{subbib:\therefsection}}}

\titleformat{\chapter}[hang]
{\bfseries \LARGE \bfseries }{ \thechapter}{0.75em}{}[\vspace{2ex}\titlerule]
\titlespacing*{\chapter}{0cm}{0cm}{0.6cm}

\usepackage{filecontents}
\begin{filecontents}{\jobname.bib}
@misc{A01,
  author = {Author, A.},
  year = {2001},
  title = {Alpha},
}
@misc{B02,
  author = {Buthor, B.},
  year = {2002},
  title = {Bravo},
}
@misc{C03,
  author = {Cuthor, C.},
  year = {2003},
  title = {Charlie},
}
\end{filecontents}
\addbibresource{\jobname.bib}

\begin{document}

\chapter*{Introduction}
\begin{refsegment}
\cite{A01}
\end{refsegment}
\chapter{Chapter 1}

\cite{A01,B02}

\chapter*{Conclusion}
\begin{refsegment}
\cite{C03}
\end{refsegment}

\backmatter

\printbibheading[heading=bibintoc]
\bibbysection[heading = subbibliography]

\end{document}

The result in the bibliography is this:

enter image description here

As you can see the references to the chapters have disappeared. There not even any question marks. I guess this means that the \csuse{subbib:\therefsection}} portion of the solution by Audrey points towards nothing after I insert the redefinition of the chapter format using titlesec's \titleformat.

Also, putting the \titleformat{...} redefinition of the chapter headings before the biblatex patch ends in the following error argument of \csdef has an extra }.

Any ideas how to work around this?

Appending the chapter macros is likely the problem. You can move the control sequence definitions for the titles just after biblatex's prepending patch.

\def\blx@refpatch@chapter#1{%
  \ifundef\chapter
    {\blx@err@nodocdiv{chapter}}
    {\pretocmd\@makechapterhead
       {#1\csdef{subbib:\therefsection}{Chapter~\ref{refsection:\therefsection}}}
       {}{\blx@err@patch{\string\@makechapterhead}}%
     \pretocmd\@makeschapterhead
       {#1\csdef{subbib:\therefsection}{\nameref{refsection:\therefsection}}}
       {}{\blx@err@patch{\string\@makeschapterhead}}}}
