I referred back to the documentation for --decorate:
Print out the ref names of any commits that are shown. If short is
specified, the ref name prefixesrefs/heads/, refs/tags/ and
refs/remotes/ will not be printed. If full is specified, the full ref
name (including prefix) will be printed. The default option is short.
since default is short, and its documented to exclude tag names, I
would expect them to not be there. I also tried removing it to test
but i saw no difference; tag names are still visible.
