I've never been charged the full fare when going through at carpool hours, though I think that's what happens on the Golden Gate if your tag doesn't read since you have to go through a staffed lane to get the discount. The state-owned bridges will get you for the correct amount.

Here's a line from a bill (looks like I got lucky):

Tag Agency Plaza Entry Time Entry Exit Debit Balance

The loop detector in the carpool lane's pavement on the Benicia-Martinez bridge is very easy to dodge. Just saying.
