According to the documentation (https://docs.unrealengine.com/en-us/Studio/Datasmith/SoftwareInteropGuides/3dsMax - under the Materials section)
"For each material in your 3ds Max scene, Datasmith creates a new Material Instance in your Unreal Engine Project. Each of these Material Assets is an instance of a Parent Material that Datasmith also creates in your Project, in the Materials/Master folder."
The parent material should be located in the folder mentioned.
