[Tagging] when should highway=centreline be used?

sorry for replying my own post...
I also found the tag road_marking
Key:road_marking - OpenStreetMap Wiki
Unlike similar keys (e.g. Key:turn) which annotate highway ways, road_marking ways describe the markings themselves. This level of detail is experimental, and has ...
which is quite often used (~ 19.000 times on ways).
A few mappers try to map the areas on roads which
are enclosed by a white line and crossing while lines
("schraffierte Fläche") . I haven't found a frequently used
tag for that, one uses highway=central_reservation which
makes not much sense to me.

we have 153 ways tagged
The wiki describes that as the white stripes in the middle of a road.
I looked at some ways tagged like that and they all seem to
be barriers between large roads (motorway,trunk), e.g.
is also tagged type=oneway. No idea what that would mean.
My understanding so far:
The tag makes no sense, editors use it instead of barrier=hedge
or something similar.
In Germany we have a traffic_sign that warns drivers when
the white line is missing, e.g. because the road was recently repaired.
I think if one wants to map this, it should be an attribute for the existing
highway, not a new way. I think the tag centreline=* is used for that (130 times).
