really? And if vehicles would be parking on both sides (without the
explicit roadside parking area that is present in this case), you would tag
it as lanes=0 and 2 parking lanes only?
IMHO these are 2 lanes, clearly marked on the ground. I do not see a reason
for one lane to be seen as parking lane only.

This gets trickier with:

yes, this is a significant issue on a few arterial roads around here.
People parking in the second row while entering shops, effectively reducing
a 2 lane road to 1 lane.
Or parked cars obstructing half of a lane, like here:
Although not legal, both are typically permanent phenomena in certain
areas, you could go there every day during business hours and find the
lanes obstructed or blocked.
Also very typical in front of every school at the start and end of school
(as well as parents obstructing sidewalks with their cars at these times).
