Excluded folder still showing its tags

I’ve tried searching to find out exactly what is meant to be covered by the Exclude feature, but I did not find anything relevant (other than a post saying that the description for the Exclude feature was incomplete because it didn’t mention ‘search’).

What I’m trying to do

I have used the Excluded Files feature to exclude a folder path. The contents of that folder do not show up anywhere in searches or the graph (as expected) which is good, but yet all of the tags from that folder still fill up my tags pane.

I would have expected an “Excluded” path to actually exclude its contents (of which tags are a part) so I don’t know why those tags are still visible.

  1. Is this a bug, an oversight / incomplete implementation, or by design?

  2. Is there a way to hide all tags coming from a particular folder?
