Bike lanes aren't exclusive either - cars move into them to turn right
(in right-hand-drive countries) and cross them at intersections or to
reach parallel parking. They open doors into them after parking.

A sharrow is more like bicycle=designated or lcn=yes, neither of which
is exclusive, even in the limited sense that a bike lane is.
