These appear to look like this because these tags are used quite frequently. However, this hypothesis seems to not be entirely true as many may be used not so much. The “status by design” tag only has 7 pages of answers as of when this question was posted.

As a follow up question, are there any other tag colors besides the basic blue one? This is all very fascinating to me. I have also linked down below two different colors. What does the gray one mean? This probably is for request questions such as the “support” tag and this question.

Hovering over the red "moderator-only-tag" at the top brings up a message which indicates that red tags can only be added to a post by a moderator.
