The STAG corresponds to a pointer to the store-reorder-queue (SRQ) entry assigned to a store instruction.
This is also used to match the store data instruction with the store address instruction in the SRQ.

Instructions are issued to the LSU out of order, with a bias toward the oldest
operations first. Stores are issued twice; an AGEN operation is issued to the
LSU, whereas a data steering operation is issued to the FXU or the VSU.

POWER8's user manual mentions the same thing:

– Fixed-point D-form stores are issued twice: an address-generation operation (issued to the LSU) and a data-steering operation (issued to the LU).

However it distinguishes this from actual cracking because cracking affects group formation and decoding throughput while store issue doesn't. This is for regular stores with only two source operands (address and data), stores with three input operands (base + offset addressing) undergo actual cracking.
