VMware backup - VM selection based on Tags

Is there a way to select the VMs in a backup specification based on the VM Tags in VMware (like in Veeam) ?

If not, then can I edit a specification from CLI so I can fetch the VMs based to Tags with PowerCLI and then update the specification dynamically ?

I checked the integration guide and looks like there is not possible to do this configuration. 

I also see the GUI and I cannot found this option. 

Please refer to

There you can see the possible backup configurations and I cannot found anything about these tags that you mention.
