Are there any fanless routers with proper 802.1Q support (with ingress
VLAN tag filtering, for instance)?

Not sure exactly what you mean by vlan tag filtering and if you mean OSes based on i386 mini-itx boxes or all fanless routers in general. But If you mean filtering based on interface or IP that is associated with a particular VLAN, as well as things like ip verify unicast reverse-path then yes you can do that in BSD land quite easily.
