Yes, good catch. Amazing that nobody noticed that earlier. It might
indicate how many users do use Haxe with Geany...:(
I will fix this unless you want to provide a patch?

Well, the manual describes it basically:

In theory, it should work for Haxe files as well. The generation is
based on the symbol parser, so it will be as good as the files you pass
in when generating the tags file and as good as the Haxe symbol parser
works :). Give it a try and ask if anything is not clear.

Cool, much appreciated.
