I was informed that I have gained the tag wiki edit privilege.

My assumption was that it works similar to the question and answer edit privilege, i.e. it does not require peer review any more and I could just edit the tag wiki with changes becoming immediately effective.

However, when I edited the open-source tag wiki, it still says that peer review is needed:

Tag wiki edit notification

Is this the expected behavior?

Yes it is.

The privilege you mention is the privilege of reviewing tag wiki edits proposed by others. These proposals appear in the Suggested Edits review queue alongside suggested edits of posts.

Any edit that you propose must still be reviewed.

In order to edit a tag wiki without your edit being reviewed by others, the privilege is Trusted User. This is achieved at a reputation level of 20,000.

    Woah, 20000 on this site, that's ~9 years from now if I can keep my rep-rate. Sep 10, 2018 at 13:39
