I know the feature is still being released but I haven't found any report of this so I'm leaving it here in case it becomes useful.

 

The new modern tagging interface in lists a) doesn't visually differentiate the terms that are available for tagging and b) it allows you to use terms that are not available for tagging. The autocomplete experience on the other hand, works as expect only allowing the correct terms.

 

Here are a few screenshots to exemplify:

Autocomplete correctly doesn't display the termAutocomplete correctly doesn't display the term

 

 

Taxonomy picker doesn't visually differentiate if terms are available for tagging and worst, allows incorrect selectionTaxonomy picker doesn't visually differentiate if terms are available for tagging and worst, allows incorrect selection

 

Which leads to incorrect values in itemsWhich leads to incorrect values in items

 

I hope this is helpful.
