[Tagging] is explicit segregated tag needed on all ways allowing cyclists and pedestrians?

In NSW we'd tag that as

highway=cycleway (although less important, as the foot and bicycle tags
indicated it's a shared path, so data consumers shouldn't care if this is
foot=designated (because signposted for pedestrians)
bicycle=designated (because signposted for bicycles)
segregated=no (because they don't each have their own dedicated lanes, they
share the same space)

Line painted in the middle just tells users to keep left based on the
direction of travel, it doesn't put cyclists and pedestrians in their own
