Note that you are using %^G, while implies (see org-capture-templates docstring):

  %^G         Prompt for tags, with completion on all tags in all agenda files.

Only the capture template is actually loaded. However, providing tag
completion for %^G requires Org to scan all the agenda files for
possible tags. Hence, agenda files must be opened and examined.

The reason why the capture target buffer and the agenda file buffers are
not closed is efficiency. Opening all the agenda files may take
considerable amount of time and hence it is generally better to keep
them open for future use. We might change it in future or provide an
option to close the opened files if there is enough interest. Feel free
to write a feature request - we will judge the number of user responses
to the request.

You may either not use global tag completion (use %^g instead %^G in
your templates) or advice org-capture to close the opened files.
