From the great masters of the browser user interface experience, I would expect options, a reasonable default (an one would suit me fine) and an override switch.

1) replacing the current tab is a fine choice, and saving the others because it is what a single bookmark does 2) not closing the current tab is a viable option so that one may keep the page that may have triggered the trip to the bookmarked tab group. 2-a) not closing the other tabs for same reason seems a logical choice 2-b) closing the other tabs to conserve resource requirements and tab space seems wise too. 3)close every tab and open the bookmark tabs. This is resource wise and a clean way completely changing the browser course, however, instantly losing what may have been hard to reach pages (login's searches etc) seems to have irked a number of users.

Seems like an append/replace switch is mandated.
