Yes, but I wouldn't be able to update the path based on that information :)
I'm guessing it's a shared use bicycle/pedestrian sign - they're
common in the area. Confusingly, also "in the area", these kinds of
paths are referred to in everyday language as "bikeways", and hence
most mappers *in the area* have been using highway=cycleway +
But without seeing that sign, I think I'll probably go with
highway=cycleway + designation=unknown + source:highway=nearmap.
