It is about the entity _operating_ a feature / object / thing.

It doesn't, but it tells you who decides on those things. That's as much
detail an average mapper is going to get. This is private
(private:amenity=*), but if you want to use it, ask the operator

There are lots of public things that are operated by private companies,

You can tag an operator on public items too, but it's not as useful as with
private objects because you don't care who operates it as long as you can
use it at will.
