If cyclist are prohibited from those driving lanes in general, that cycleway  should not be considered bicycle=obligatory but bicycle=designated in my mind. It like you said, routers will find the next available way for cyclists.

The problem is that if the cycleway does no allow a turn at the next intersection, then the bicycle is allowed to use the road to gain access to the next road.
So it is a conditional no. At least that was one explanation given to me. Puzzling for those that have not come across it.
