The osm ways do and can not match one-to-one with traffic signs.
The tag oneway=yes on an osm way does not only mean "this is
a _road_ with a oneway sign", but "traffic should not traverse this
way in the backward direction". For the simplest example, most
dual carriageway roads do not have a oneway traffic sign on either
carriageway, they might not even have a "no entry" sign for the
opposing direction carriageway (just a "pass this sign/obstacle on
the right" at the intersections, if even that).
Even the no entry (round red sign with a yellow/white horizontal
rectangle) sign _effectively_ makes a short section oneway: every
vehicle has length, so at some point coming from the "oneway"
direction, there's at least a small (but several meters) distance
where they aren't allowed to turn around - if they did, they would
unavoidably pass the no entry sign.
