The first reference to tagging lanes for cyclist on the lanes page is
made here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key%3Alanes&type=revision&diff=648732&oldid=648729

My interpretation is that he writes that cycle lanes should be mapped
as cycleway=lane (and thus not be included in the lanes-count).
So perhaps you should contact him to ask why he came up with this
definition (besides the arguments we gave above) ?
