This depends on your definition of “lanes”

Agreed. But what exactly do you mean by “Bicycle lanes”? designated cycle ways with at least priority for cyclists (dedicated bike lanes, protected bike lanes, cycle tracks, cycle paths, mandatory and advisory cycle lanes) ? Or shared use lanes with motor vehicles and some form of bike infra (bicycle pictograms, sharrows, suggestive lanes, smurf lanes)

True, but why do you bring “*=lane” to the party (lanes=*, *:lanes=*) now?

I disagree. And you still haven’t provided me with an example where having an identical lanes count (lanes=* and *:lanes=*) will solve an existing problem.
