I have used building=yes.
If castles are to have a building=castle then so too do other
buildings.. building=palace ...

At the moment I have used barrier=wall .. to that can be added height
and material tags.
The difference between a city wall and a castle wall? Higher? ... Both
have some defensive capability.
Some times the building inside the castle also has defensive
Considering the numbers and variability .. within OSM I'd think a tag
that covers any defensive wall would be best..
The difficult part is to signify the wall has a path along its top, and
How is the 'Great Wall of China" tagged ?
Perhaps in the future?
You can tell what the wall surrounds ..usually by looking.
