There is another paragraphe to notice:
"For sharing tags with another PC (or Thunderbird using a different
profile) you need to have defined the same tags to see them.
Thunderbird appears to have hard coded support for five tags that
mimic the old labels."
Did you tested, if all Thunderbirds store the equally named tag with
the same IMAP keyword?
