In the Netherlands, there are no signs by the road for this. You just have to keep your average speed on a couple of km stretch under the limit.

There is an item on uservoice you can vote on, to implement this kind of trap.

There has been some discussions about this in Portugal but everything gets stalled due to burocracy. Simply put the discussion has been, if these are ever enabled, about driving above the limit, as usual, then stop at a rest area to compensate the average.
Now transposing this into an app is quite complicated. The app would need to be aware of the entry point, measure the speed *without major deviations* all the time, and then be smart to know the exit point, the legal average, the current average, and start yelling like "drive at 50kmh for the next 5km to compensate the time you were at 180 you bitch".

Waze can't even warn properly if one accelerates or breaks at the wrong dozen meters before the radar.

Heck, last weeks it even warns me about radars nearby but not even near my route.

So no don't expect this any soon.

My advice? Put a radar every km on that segment from entry to exit point >:)

Second radar takes plate number and associated time.
The distance is known so it only stays to substract times and calculate speed.

So it's not really a Radar, but a license plate reader / time elapsed over known distance math problem... Interesting...

How does the system tell the difference between cars passing the devices (to know who gets the ticket)? And how does the radar know it's picking up a reflection from a specific car and not the truck next to/behind it (radar guns typically use the largest return - i.e. the truck)?

They are speed cameras, plain and simple.

These are still just speed cameras using more technology to catch you. I'd say use the existing speed cams. They have the exact same functionality/outcome: your speed is measured and if it exceeds a threshold, you get a fine/ticket.
