You can chart the rise of “tagged” here:
I’m guessing the eggcorn is a sort of blend. People confuse “the tag end” with “tacked on the end.”
I see one example of the round-tripper, but it’s not common:
: “The Only way is Essex style is dominating the tack end of the fashion spectrum”
Hatching new language, one eggcorn at a time.
And then there’s the “tag question”, which is tacked on to the end of a sentence, providing some influence.
