As been pointed out many, many, many times (and it is not going to
change), CC0 explicitly does not cover third party rights in the
licensed material, just those of the entity distributing the work.

So adding information from OSM to Wikidata does not create a licence
conflict as such (not discussing if the material added is even protected
to start with).
