Is it OK to use natural=volcano for remains of volcanoes?

There is volcano:status=extinct but I feel that tagging 
volcano-related rocks as volcanoes is a poor idea.

for a real example (text in German, but images should be clear).

Similar examples include
Góra Swiętej Anny / Annaberg
https://pl.wikipedia.org/wiki/G%C3%B3ra_%C5%9Awi%C4%99tej_Anny - 
volcano existed here 27 millions years ago, volcanic cone is fully eroded and
the current hill is made of stones formed in the caldera of the volcano.

There are volcanic rocks here, mountains looks like a volcanonic cone, called 
volcano by some for marketing purposes but there is no reason whatsoever to
describe it as volcano.
