I removed the use on ways from the wiki page.

I agree 100% with this.

I also added the following phrase to the "Usage" section:

I think you mentioned some outdoor map renders the noexit tag.
Do you know which one?
We could add a "Rendering" section to the wiki page. (JOSM also renders it
on the editor)

Could someone clarify the "Usage" section of the wiki page please?
