Effects of priority roads + Co on cycleways

Good morning, everyone!

I’m not sure about the legislation in other countries, but in Germany, if a cycleway goes alongside a priority road and can be seen as part of the “whole street”, the both the carriageway and the cycleway have right of way.

Usually, around me, people tag the carriageway with priority_road=designated and not every single highway=give_way, because it would be redundant. If the cycleway is not mapped separately, then the priority road automatically applies to it as well. When mapping them separately, though, do people add priority_road=designated to the cycleway as well, or do you map every single yield/give_way sign, signalling that it applies to the cycleway? I’m curious, because I heven’t seen priority_road=designated on a cycleway yet.
