Or you could just report the images as expired and the tapes as having
been returned to scratch status and leave it at that.   I doubt they can
require you to try to figure out which tapes previously had information
anymore than they can require you to use an electron microscope to see
if there are any bits of data from deleted files on your hard drives.

I'll give a reason for using specific tapes, litigation discovery.  Our
email backups need to go to specific tapes so that the tapes are reused
within 24 hours of the image(s) expiring.  If you used scratch tapes,
when the image expires the data is still on the tape, it can be
re-imported and recovered.  We have many dozen scratch tapes, so the
email backups could exist for weeks after the images expire.
