How to get Joplin to apply Tags from a Bear Notes import?

I have hundreds of notes in the Bear Notes macOS app in markdown format which I want to transfer to Joplin. I can export the notes into a folder which can be imported into Joplin, but the tags are not applied.

Tags in Bear are just #hashtags at the bottom (or top) of the .md document. For example the note:

# Installing RancherOS
... some text
#server/RancherOS #linux

will be displayed in a folder-like tag-tree:

bear%20tags

What would be the recommended way to get these tags applied within Joplin?
