LOL, yes — there will always be exceptions that do not perfectly fit the
general description. Some of them are high, and therefore might be used as
a landmark, others might be of interest to tourists and religious persons,
so tagging them is certainly worthwhile.  I don't know what is best for
those particular structures but I have an opinion.

I would use man_made=bell_cage for the shorter ones and man_made=tower,
tower:type=bell_tower for the taller ones. If the structure has a roof, or
otherwise has normal height to width dimensions at its base, add
building=yes as well. Many on the Polish images page look like man_made
structures to hold bells and my my choice for those is man_made=bell_cage,
but each one must be evaluated and tagged individually.

I would tag the Greek example with man_made=tower, tower:type=bell_tower. I
might include its outline with that of the adjoining church and tag both
with building=yes and amenity=place_of_worship, etc.
