Nope.  But I don't need any.  Martin suggested that oneway:foot=no was
meaningless.  Your request for examples means you're asking a different
question, whether or not it is currently necessary to make it clear that
a way which is oneway for vehicular traffic is not oneway for pedestrians.

There may be no examples of its correct usage anywhere in the world.  It's
possible there may never be any such examples (but that is not something
you or I can guarantee).  That wouldn't make the tag meaningless, just
unnecessary.  The meaning of the tag is perfectly clear to most people
here; the (current) necessity for it is arguable.
