The original tag is never tagged
grep refs/tags/v4.6.0 gitlog-step
progress Creating annotated tag v4.6.0 from ref refs/tags/v4.6.0
from refs/tags/v4.6.0

I think that you have found a bug in svn2git. When creating a branch the 
information is not written to git directly but saved and later written when 
the next transaction is commited. However in your case the next transaction is 
never created as the tagging was the last thing that happend.
