Hello Mateusz,
and thank you for reviewing my proposal

It is unclear to me how one would tag trail where poles/cairns are used on
> part of it.

This is actually a very common case ... trail is very often marked this way
only on some places which are difficult to navigate or mistake in
navigation can happen.
I was thinking of adding this tag to a highway=path or highway=track or
similar ...  actually only on section which are really marked
But it might be that I am missing something ...

No ... I didn't think to add it on relation for the same reason.

I am not insisting on this solution if better will be suggested ...
The solution I am suggesting just looked natural.
