You know, interesting that you bring this up.
Not showing sublevels is something from the early days of Org-mode.
For a simple tag search, this might have made some sense. However,
I was afraid that TODO items could get missing when turning this
on, so when we do a tags search that should list TODO entries
only, Org assumes that this is really a TODO search and *forces*
First of all, for tag searches, there is a separate variable
org-tags-match-list-sublevels which must be used.
However, as I said, the value is currently overruled during

I am now removing this restriction (hoping that no-one relies on
it), so setting the above variable should now work.
In fact I would urge you to *not* set it to nil globally, but to
*only* set it for specific searches, by using the options section
of the custom agenda command. See Matt's excellent tutorial
for example on how to do this.
