I can see both sides of this one, and mostly I'm fine with the way it works now. But ... (there's always a "but," isn't there?) The way note counts are displayed in hierarchical tags seems very unintuitive. My tag hierarchy is set up so that parent tags are only used to group child tags, so notes aren't directly assigned to them ... so when the child tags aren't being displayed, I have a list of header tags that all have (0) next to them, even though there are dozens of notes assigned to the various child tags. So here's my suggestion. There need to be two note counts shown for parent tags -- the first showing the number of notes tagged to the parent, the other showing the total number of notes tagged with one of the child tags. It could look like this, for example: (0/69).
