To answer your question directly, yes the original VLAN tag will be preserved. However, don't look at it from the perspective of preserving VLAN tags, look at it as preserving the entire layer-2 header (except for maybe the address).

  • ethernet-ccc simply assumes that each end of the cross-connect has similar ethernet features. Ethernet can send tagged or untagged frames, etc.
  • vlan-ccc assumes that each end of the cross-connect will send tagged frames using VLAN 512 or higher using TPID 0x8100.
  • extended-vlan-ccc assumes the same as vlan-ccc, but can use all VLAN IDs and all TPID values.

All of that said, if you have pseudowires, VPLS, or other features that are pushing/popping/swapping VLANs, you have to account for that on your other customer facing interfaces.

I'm happy to edit my answer if you need further clarification.
