I did some digging in some examples I have identified in Poland. Looks
like all of the ones, that I look at where created by Potlatch...

Looking at: https://github.com/openstreetmap/potlatch2/blob/233799c18c25b0f6aeec8c99c603ea9e02afa1d9/resources/map_features.xml

It looks like when describing the road, when user selects "no bike
lanes" this will result in setting cycleway=no. I don't see any way to
set cycleway=no on highway=cycleway though.
