I believe the detail should read something like this:  In the shop, PJP the
shear tab to the column flange and provide a reinforcing fillet on the
opposite (unwelded) side.  When the beam is placed in the field, the beam
web is CJP welded to the column flange on the far side of the shear tab,
shear tab is used for backing.  The fillet welds are made between the beam
web and the shear tab following the CJP weld of the beam web to column
flange.  The intent is to get the web connection as rigid and redundant as
possible while still being reasonable to construct.
