SSIDs and VLAN on access points

The commands to map an SSID to a VLAN on an IOS access point are basically like this:

[snip]

dot11 ssid MYSSID

vlan 5

!

interface Dot11Radio0

ssid MYSSID

!

interface Dot11Radio0.5

encapsulation dot1q 5

bridge-group 5

!

interface FastEthernet0

!

interface FastEthernet0.5

encapsulation dot1q 5

bridge-group 5

!

[snip]

My question is this: what does the command "vlan 5" actually do? Does it map MYSSID to bridge-group 5, which is then mapped to 802.1q tag 5 by the subinterface configurations (so that the tag number is arbitrary), or does it map MYSSID to 802.1q tag 5 on the radio interface, which is then bridged to the appropriate dot1q subinterface on the wired side by the bridge group (so that the bridge group number is arbitrary)?

Vlan tag is tied to SSID and Bridge group is also tagged to appropriate vlan mentioned as bridge group number
