No, count isn't a criteria at all. man_made=mill is simply not included
automatically, because there is no wiki page for it.

I recommend giving an explicit list of all tags that you want to have in
your list. Just using the key only is more of a short-cut to help get
you going.

In my opinion it makes sense to have a human edit the complete list of
everything they want to have in that list. That is the power of the wiki
after all, that it is not autogenerated, but somebody actually curates
this list. Taginfo should only be the helper here that makes it easier,
but it shouldn't decide what ends up on that list and what doesn't.
