I’m not able to reproduce the issue. I see the event fired and the console.log appears. How are you adding a tag to the frontmatter? In source mode or in live preview?

Sorry, this was due to a discrepancy in the API. Tags in the body are stored in .tags (prefixed with a #), tags in frontmatter are stored i frontmatter.tags (without a #). My bad.
