    Your X0 interface is the untagged or native VLAN. when your laptop is connected to X0 it will not add a 802.1q tag in the ethernet frame.

    The VLAN sub interfaces comes in to their own when using VLAN capable switches, servers, Access Points etc.

    Example below using a switch which can add VLAN tags.

    I could be a switch or AP where different SSID's are assigned to unique VLANS

    There are may resources on VLANS
