I've replicated a bug and created a fix for this.

Will provide more information in a new comment and provide a pull request for it.

Problem: The TagPropertyDefinition class that provides the tag definition on how to parse the tag is always in CSV modes. This affects the way the TagExtractor parses the value - which is causing this issue.

There was also an additional issue when prevalues were retrieved for the tag property type, line 456 in VersionableRepositoryBase. Distinct was being called, which meant 'storageType' wasn't being returned and only 'group' was being returned. Shortly after this, the TagExtractor is called with the prevalues retrieved.

Solution: I fixed the line retrieving prevalues on line 456. I have also updated the TagPropertyDefinition to check the 'storageType' prevalue and check if it is set to be JSON and set the TagCacheStorageType accordingly.
