If I understand correctly only the specification is "copied", not the (reference) implementation, or does OGC also keeps such reference code?
The scope of this work is indeed only to develop & maintain the specification. OGC does not develop reference implementations by themselves, but can link to them. Most standards come with a compliance testing suite (https://cite.opengeospatial.org/teamengine/), but I don't know if that's something that will be developed for BigTIFF.
Will the OGC put a process in place for BigTiff tags?
What do you call exactly as BigTIFF tags?
The OGC Naming Authority (https://github.com/opengeospatial/NamingAuthority) maintains a online registry of various stuff. Regarding GeoTIFF, it for example lists the GeoTIFF tags: https://github.com/opengeospatial/NamingAuthority/blob/master/specification-elements/defs/19-008r4.ttl
