In Finland the marking in the first image is for an ”extension of a
cycleway”, ie. a place for cyclists to cross the road. It's not meant
for foot traffic and doesn't give cyclists precedence over traffic on
the road, unlike a marked footway crossing.

The second one would in Finland probably be used for marking the edges
of a bump, also having no effect on the precedence of traffic modes.
