Nodes on ways do have an "inherited" direction (unless they are end nodes)
The wiki page
" You may use traffic_sign:forward
<https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:forward>=* to specify that this
particular sign affects vehicles moving in the same direction as the way,
or traffic_sign:backward <https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:backward>
=* to specify that the opposite direction is affected."
