regarding the human readable values:

Some mappers add diverse tags like this to the node:


OpenStreetMap is a map of the world, created by people like you and free to use under an open license.

In my eyes this is wrong tagging, but it seems to show

that the cryptic code is not enough.

It is often used to simply prohibit traffic, with exceptions shown on a

not a one way.

in Belgium that's a round white plate with a red border. In the case of "except ...", you know there can be traffic from the other direction.
For the red plate with the white line, it excludes all traffic in that direction. Although, typically bicycles and moped of cat A (< 25 km/h) are allowed via an exception sign.
