I am not sure on "personell", because this refers to people, while I think
that the exception refers to vehicles in military service (I am not
completely sure how it is written, this exception was reported by a local
mapper (I guess from a sign that is there), but is not found in the text I
have linked (maybe because this text is generally about individual
permissions, and they do not need it).

trams might be excluded from turn_restrictions for instance. Also the
presence of rails does not mean that the tram is automatically allowed to
go there, there might be oneway restrictions or the rails could be old: It
happens from time to time that traffic flows are reorganized, but the rails
will typically not be removed instantly.
