This feature has been labeled as deprecated. The recommended replacement is: historic=wayside_shrine or sometimes amenity=place_of_worship + religion=christian.
The reason is documented in Deprecated features. You are still free to continue to use or interpret this tag as you see fit since OpenStreetMap does not have “banned features”.
Under no circumstances should you (semi-)automatically change “deprecated” tags to something else in the database on a large scale without conforming to the automated edits code of conduct. Any such change will be reverted.

The tag historic=wayside_chapel was introduced by mistake to map a small place of worship or shrine alongside a road.

The tag historic=wayside_shrine should be used instead in most cases, with religion=*

For a small Christian place of worship, use amenity=place of worship + religion=christian

In case you can enter the building, see building=chapel, if you normally can't enter the building (e.g. the scene is intended to be viewed from outside), see building=shrine.
