It is not done for hiking paths.. at least not here.

Some are 'official' and use sections on beaches where the path is not visible at all.

Some are not official yet used and common knowledge. Some get maintenance, some don't.

There are no specific tags for 'official' and 'in use' or whatever.

Some are on 'official maps', others are not (I take pride in putting those into OSM, provided they are 'on the ground').
