Are tags included in backups?

I am getting ready to upgrade to 4.2 and want to make sure the process will go smoothly.

I have 100s of VMs with many of them having custom tags.

I’m reading this issue qvm-tags not included in Qubes backups and not re-applied when restoring · Issue #4167 · QubesOS/qubes-issues · GitHub which says that tags are not included in backups. I have done a test restore of a single VM on my current system and the tags were included, so I don’t know if this is an issue anymore.

Can someone please confirm?
