I don't see any practical reason to add a SoB to a tag.  A tag is a
symbolic reference to an existing commit.  There is never any code

A merge may involve code change so a SoB makes sense.  I now SoB all

Of course, if you want to include a SoB, more power to you but I am not
requiring it.

Note the tags don't show up in qemu.git git history.  I don't push them
as there's no point in pushing them there.  When I do a merge, I'm
merging the commit that the tag points to, not the tag itself.  The tag
only exists for me to be able to validate you are who you say you are
sending what you said you've sent.

So I really don't care if there's any content in the tag.  It's mostly
for your own personal benefit.
