FreeBSD switched from sysmouse to evdev as main mouse input protocol somewhere
between 12.1 and 12.2. That resulted in replacement of traditional
xf86-input-mouse input driver with xf86-input-libinput which have tapping
disabled by default. To enable it again, you have following options:

1. Poke libinput authors to change defaults.
2. Set Option "Tapping" "on" in your X11 or DE config as you already did.
3. Make psm to be responsible for gesture processing again with setting of
4. Return back to xf86-input-mouse with recompiling your kernel with
EVDEV_SUPPORT option disabled.

I recommend to stay with #2.
