... "where it is legal to go on foot" is an important proviso.

https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/65663472 (Meir Tunnel, dry even on a 
wet Wednesday in Stoke*) bans foot and bicycle traffic, so you can 
neither walk nor cycle through it.  A cycle router would have to 
flat-out avoid it, whereas it may choose not to avoid a short 
bicycle=dismount section if it saves a long detour.

Best Regards,


* in English football, a "wet Wednesday in Stoke" is thought of as an 
occasion when a top team's star players may struggle in adverse 
conditions that the home side are used to.
