I was able to enter the folder where the tag existed but can't change the sticky bit and even as a root but cannot be able to delete them

I Don't know much of kde's so please suggest any possible solution(s)

What does deleting a folder have to do with KDE?

sudo rm -r /run/user/1000/kio-fuse-KskKzX/tags/Physics/
man rmdir
rmdir - Remove empty directories

I don't understand your topic. You have already found this reported issue as a KDE bug upstream.
It is a KDE bug.
If KDE devs cannot answer on this, how can we?

Have you tried the proposed workaround?

balooctl purge
