IMO nuzzling in general is defined by being a pushing and rubbing of one's face and head into and against the subject of affection. If this happens to target the neck, it could be neck nuzzling.
IMO hugging is defined by any sort of grabbing, opposed-pressing, enclosing kind of motion - to lean one's head upon a shoulder, thus sort-of enclosing the shoulder between your head yourand shoulder as well, or the traditional inward-pressing arms, or to lean bodily upon someone else and sort of bring your arms up just at the sides, all still kind of fulfill the wrap/enclose/press inward philosophies of hugging. With longer-necked creatures, this can get even more inventive, potentially overlapping with nuzzling, but would need to maintain the partially-enclose/compress attributes of a hug.

tl;dr They sound like separate behaviors and their tags look like they need cleanup.
