That sites uses search descriptions (keywords - Tags for this Thread) for the there own search engines they are not meta tags in the traditional sense that search engines pick up on like google. That site has there own generic meta tags that are not what you see under the topics. Search engines scan the sites topic titles and posts. Those descriptions (Tags for this Thread) at the bottom of topics are for there own "in-house" search engine.

Search engines that scan your forum aren't looking for meta tags in the topics, they get there info from the 'titles of the topics' that gets there priority the most, and contents of the posts, topic meta tags are not going to do any good for search engines or can you implement them. As far as your forum search engine goes it uses the titles of the topics exclusively, those act like keywords for the search. The forum search also can be narrowed down to find keywords in the posts as well, but search engines do not use meta tags for topics, they scan the actual topic titles and posts, those achieve the same results as meta tags would.

On another note, search engine meta tags are becoming outdated and obsolete, and useless really, because most search engines don't use them anymore, they rely on the scan bots of the site to tell them what is important. This is because of the misuse of meta tags in the past. People would put false tags in there site that had nothing to do with the sites content to generate traffic, so search engines don't pay much attention to meta tags anymore.
