although you can put source tags on objects, there's much more sense* to adding the "bezier=yes/no" tag on ways, and nearly nobody does the latter: https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/bezier



* because it is the only way to tell whether a way has straight edges or is the approximation on a curve.
example: this lake would look very different if the edges were meant to be curves (as is frequent with lakes): http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/22883200
similarly kerbs can be angled or rounded, etc.
