That column shows the 'last committed revision', i.e. the revision where
that path was last changed in a commit. But that doesn't mean the path
doesn't exist in other revisions too, even in HEAD (you browse usually
the HEAD revision with the repobrowser, so all path you see there
actually exist in the HEAD revision).

The log dialog only shows revisions where the selected path actually got
changed. So you won't see a log entry for HEAD if the selected path
wasn't just changed and committed.

But you explicitly told Subversion to create the tag from HEAD (you
selected that entry in the branch/tag dialog), and the HEAD revision was
11 at that time. So Subversion did exactly what it was told. And the
graph also shows exactly what you have done.
