It doesn't say they are mines, it says that man made caves might be mines.
It also says that "mining tunnels, air raid shelters or dugouts" aren't
caves, but it doesn't speak about Grottoes for instance, about which
wikipedia writes that they are "natural or artificial caves".

Besides this, in the first five years of that OSM wiki article there was no
mention of artificial caves, it was only 2 years ago when LastGrape decided
to put this sentence about man made caves onto this page, and it is not
clear whether this is really the consensus of the community or just a not
well thought through sentence he unilaterally put in.
