I would see it similarly, for sure the first example. The independence cross, second example, typologically would not fall into the “wayside” class IMHO. It is kind of those monumental crosses raised at elevated positions, more similar to a summit cross. 
The cross on the square (3rd example) also isn’t the typical “wayside” type, but could be an edge case which is still in. These interpretations are based on the assumption that wayside cross actually means wayside cross, and not any kind of cross. 

I would tag any wayside cross with the historic=wayside_cross tags, not just those that are “historic” (what ever this means, it isn’t clear in any way).
