I am sorry for the misunderstanding – the feature of the synthesized full backup to tape is a brand new (it was just released in v8) and it might be confusing. “Process incremental backup files” should be additionally checked in order to trigger the synthesized full creation in the current version. However, we are aware that users would like to have synthesized full back up without incremental backups processing, so we are currently working with the dev team to make it happen.
Once again I am sorry for any confusion caused, I will send a follow up to tech support team and tech writers team to update their internal and external docs – thank you for pointing this out.

Yes, in case of reverse incremental job, only VBK is copied to tape during each job run.
