Thanks Steve for pointing this out. I am seeing some odd behavior with tags.

It appears some maintainers want the tags in chronological order, which
is Reviewed-by after Signed-off which doesn't make sense to me.

I prefer Signed-off-by last.

I am working on FAQ (Frequently Answered Questions) section for mentees.
I will add this to it.
