What about disused bunkers? I would expect them to follow the same
rules as "buildings" and other physical objects

The wiki page https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:military%3Dbunker
says you can combine military=bunker with building=bunker. This makes
sense to me.

but also adds

abandoned:building=* - when it is abandoned
ruins:building=* - when it is in ruins (destroyed)

however, it does not mention "disused'

Should we use

+ building=bunker


+ building=bunker

instead for abandoned/disused bunkers, as the bunker is still there as
object, but no longer used for military purposes. This would be more
in line with what people wrote about the other physical objects.

Not sure about the ruins:building, maybe that is OK.
