Ahhhh, I think I just understand where we have the misunderstanding:

im(p)tcp by definition processes syslog messages
imfile by definition processes text file lines (which are NOT syslog messages)
so im(p)tcp always has a tag, and hence needs no config parama
where imfile by definition does not have a tag and thus needs one configured.

Does that help?
