Both the above are portable - so temporary and therefore not mappable in 
OSM.  However for testing purposes?

Both are targeted at workers .. footwear=occupational?

As for the function? No idea what the military are targeting there, the 
forestry probably decontamination=pathogen.

I'd use the rule .. "if you don't know .. don't add tags that say 
anything that you don't know".

So just add the tag man_made=footwear_decontamination .. and nothing else.

footwear= ... humm yes? As a general everything tag 'yes' suits?
decontamination=sticky_mat ? Sticky mats only remove surface 
contamination - things that could have fallen off. They don't do pathogens.
And they need frequent replacement. I have bought such things in my 
work. But I would not map them.

The ones for hikers usually have a sign saying why they are there 
(pathogens in most cases) and how to use them.

phytophthora, myrtle rust

chytrid fungus
