When two tags are merged, are followers of the old tag moved onto the new tag? If not, should this happen?

Or am I not understanding something about how the merging process works?

Yes, tag watchers get moved to the new tag.

I just tried this here on Meta.SE with two tags that are going to be gotten rid of - and . I added to my watched tags, and @Tinkeringbell merged [forum] into [forums].

then appeared in my watched tags list.
