the answer is probably because someone has unilaterally added these words
10 years ago into the wiki, based on assumptions from his regional context,
without being aware that many parts of the world are built according to
different standards (or no standards). It is a typical norther European /
American point of view, where everything is "well organised" and
structured, so that unsigned lanes at most occur systematically in the
countryside, but not in the centre of a big city. And where all traffic is
focussed on motorized vehicles.
