In Spain white lines are usually painted black, so at dawn or dusk they reflect the sun and are thus more readable than the yellow ones. Directional signage is barely changed, so confusion is also an issue.

That's entirely new asphalt for a widening. Normally the yellow lines are drawn over the existing road markings, like this:

As far as I saw, in Hungary and in Germany, too, the white marings are unchanged during the works, just like in your pictures.
Two weeks ago I drove through lots of roadworks in German A7 (there's at least ten Baustelle between Nürnberg and Hamburg), the white lines were there everywhere, untouched.

In Italy you can find both situations, with white markings intact or deleted.

in HR we also have both, although more often they leave white markings. we have another problem - they make 2+2 yellow lanes, but there is not enough space for that, so it is useless and confusing.

Those are just local tubes that later join the main tube.

I don't know, maybe some Hungarian posted a link somewhere, but then it would probably be in Hungarian, not Slovenian. But I did notice "Storitev Google Zemljevidi je na voljo v: magyar" and found it weird.

EDIT: looks like I got it from here.

Upam da bo stari/novi vmesni steber zgledal kaj lepše

Why not light signs from below? If you light signs from the top they become less readable due to shadows.

Example in the Netherlands:

We don't use them anymore because of retroreflective diamond grade signs.
