if those religious buildings have defined specific functions these should get a dedicated tag besides the building tag. Building =* is a tag about the building itself, not the use/function of it.

should the vatican museums get the landuse =religious tag? Saint Peter's square? Castel Gandolfo? How can I tell whether an amenity  nearby a POW and owned+operated by the church belongs to the POW, and when does the POW belong to the amenity without them being landuse=religious? Like you wrote, in certain contexts it will be normal to have "holy places" like chapels and shrines associated with other things.
