I'm not really sure to understand your question. Viewing the commands
you used to set this up would certainly help.

anyway, assuming you configured this with iproute: eg:
ip link add link eth0 eth0.10 type vlan id 10

Then the tagging depends on your routing:
   * If it has to go out from eth0.10 -> tagging
   * If it has to go out from eth0 -> no tagging
