Yes, it will, provided those files are not in the Attic.  It will also
*remove* the tag from any files in the Attic where it does exist.

The documentation is perhaps too terse.  The functionality may leave
something to be desired, too.  Here's what it really does:

If you use -a and don't use either -r or -D, the tag is removed from any
files that are in the Attic and added to the most recent revision of any
files that are not in the Attic.

If you use -a along with -r or -D (or both), the tag is added to any
files (whether in the Attic or not) that have a matching revision and
removed from any files (whether in the Attic or not) that don't.
