Cycle lane types

In many countries, there are two different kind of cycle lanes:

  1. Proper cycle lanes exclusive to cyclists that are mandatory to use and
  2. Cycle lanes that are not mandatory (because they are too slim) but advisory and cars may cross into them if they need to

Examples from Ireland:

Exclusive cycle lane (continuous line)

An advisory cycle lane (a rather extreme example, it doesn’t have to be that bad)

Now, for Sweden, I found only Vägmarkeringar which describes cycle lane markings in Sweden to be a dotted white line.

Does this mean that the second cycle lane type does simply not exist in Sweden?

(And hence, tagging cycleway::lane=exclusive or =advisory would be superfluous?)
