Inconsistent application of conditional formatting when a tag is used as the trigger

I have discovered what I think is inconsistent behaviour when creating Conditional Formatting rules based on tags. 

If a rule is set so that a tag is the trigger and "Is Exactly" the condition, then in my view the rule should apply only if that tag is present. However, it appears the rule can be triggered if there are multiple tags if the target tag is present, provided the rule is higher in the list of rules than any other rules applying to tags..

In other words "Is Exactly" and "Contains" appear to work the same way as triggers when applied to tags, which is illogical. What should happen is that "Contains" should trigger the application of the rule if the target tag is present among multiple tags, but "Is Exactly" should be applied only if the target tag is the only one present.
