Definitely does not work that way here. I have several host entries
that have tags like:
DESCR:vip:"Anycast DNS address"
With --tooltips=never in my BBGENOPTS, this is part of the info page.
But it is also rendered on the groups page:
dns-anycast (vip:Anycast DNS address) conn:green:6d04h08m
dns:green:6d04h45m info:green:10.254.254.1 trends:green:
