Where does it explicitly state that? I don't see it (and indeed it isn't

I wonder if we're looking at the same version of the text. The current
version includes examples:
tags bugnumber [ + | - | = ] tag [ tag ... ]
Sets tags for the bug report #bugnumber. No notification is sent to the
user who reported the bug. Setting the action to + means to add each given
tag, - means to remove each given tag, and = means to ignore the current
tags and set them afresh to the list provided. The default action is
# same as 'tags 123456 + patch'
tags 123456 patch
# same as 'tags 123456 + help security'
tags 123456 help security
# add 'fixed' and 'pending' tags
tags 123456 + fixed pending
# remove 'unreproducible' tag
tags 123456 - unreproducible
# set tags to exactly 'moreinfo' and 'unreproducible'
tags 123456 = moreinfo unreproducible
So, 'tags 269115 +patch +upstream' as you tried is a syntax error: you
should use 'tags 269115 + patch upstream' instead.
