You can't always take taginfo numbers at face value. For example, in
the UK much of the usage of "landuse=religious" was introduced by this
That includes many examples such as this one:
which was previously "landuse=churchyard" but was changed to the less
descriptive "landuse=religious". Now it may be that, following a visit,
it was clear that for some reason a "landuse=churchyard" tag wasn't
appropriate here, and it's possible (but unlikely) that there were
visits to similar churchyards the length and breadth of the UK, but I
somehow doubt it. I've now asked in a changeset discussion comment what
the source of that change was.
It's true however that there are also examples where local mappers have
found "landuse=religious" useful:
That's just "the area around a church building", but isn't really a
churchyard as such.
