Your first example is a cycleway=track. If you don't map it
separately, and instead consider it to be part of Waalbandijk, you
would add cycleway=track to the Waalbandijk way. If you do map it
separately as a highway=cycleway, you can add cycleway=track to the
highway=cycleway way, but it would be redundant.
