Haha, of course you can find some questionnable examples! The forst is a
very new TOP, they put it in place before the expected route changes. There
are some local routes and horse trails,  which are not recorded in OSM,
and it's part of the cycling node network. Cycling routre LF9 is there. And
access to watersports, though I wouldn't call that a "trail" unless there
are markings to follow by boat. (Other places do have canoe/rowing trails,
but I haven't seen those on this particular location.)

The "Natuurpoort" ('nature gate') is a different series from the TOPs. It
has no formal requirement as to hiking/cycling trails, but gives access to
areas we consider to be nature. The routes through the area start or pass
through this location. These include hiking trails, local trails, cycling
routes, horse routes, and sometimes other routes. Many of those are not
recorded in OSM, and there is no guarantee that any OSM route passes
through there.

The example you give is close to the cycling and hiking node networks. It
also serves the regional trail "Hertogenpad".

So both locations are actually there, including stele, information boards
and guideposts, and designed/designated and named for the purpose of
accessing various routes and trails.

If someone made a POI map or POI list for hikers and maybe a router app for
hikers, you would want these locations showed/listed/routed as well.
