I wonder if it is useful to tag bicycle=dismount on ways.

At least in Germany there is no official traffic sign despite of the
existence of some.

You are allowed to push your bike on every footway/pedestrian plus ways
with vehicle=no. E.g. it is useless. Either you are allowed to ride
(bicycle=yes/designated) or not (bicycle=no or vehicle=no)

I can understand if it is used together with barrier on nodes.

How is the situation in other countries ?
