Recently the (106) tag was created. It should be merged with (385) tag. The tag is more general and it is the older one, but should it be the one to live on? This seems disputable as I haven't heard of a virtual function which is not a method.

Every virtual function is a method and every virtual method is a function. That's why they should be synonyms.

"Virtual function" seems to be the expression used more commonly (Google gives 670000 vs. 260000 hits), so probably it would be the appropriate main tag.
