I think he would have reacted by now if he had eaten them.  It probably would have bothered him right away.  When my cat ate something, it affected him within 24 hours.  I’d trust your vet and wait it out.  If there’s any other type of symptom though that worries you, then take him in.

@WhiteSnow:  Dark brown is not necessarily blood.  If it is bleeding from the lower intestines it will be red just like any other blood, if it is from the stomach or higher up in the intestines and gets digested it will be almost black.  If he is otherwise fine it may be the tags got lost somewhere and he never did eat them.  If you are getting worried, it may be worth the money to have piece of mind to bring him in for an xray.  If the tags are in there, they will be pretty obvious.
