These are clearly markings for me, the tactile pavings are typically white and even visible in 
aerial imagery. Thus "unmarked crossing" is wrong. The tag is tactile_paving=*, used 300k.

The question is then, should they be mapped on the road or where they are, at the kerb?

For the lowered kerbs, they should be mapped as lowered kerbs, there is a tag for them, 
kerb=lowered, used 100k.
