Tags in SpreadJS are affected when different actions are performed. See what happens when a cell with a tag on it, is copied and pasted or dragged and dropped.

The following actions will affect tags as follows: If a cut and paste or drag and drop action occurs, tag data will move with the cell. If a copy and paste or drag and fill action occurs, tag data will be copied. If the type of tag is a complex type, it will be cloned. Tag actions can be undone or redone after they are complete.
