Waze also "learns" information about the roads you travel - average speed (broken down into 10-15 minute increments), time at the ends of segments (how long it takes to make each turn), etc. It uses all that data to determine the fastest route.
When Waze suggests "wrong" directions consistently you can help it "learn" by driving both your preferred route as well as the "wrong" route several times. Waze will take that data into consideration and "learn" the faster route.
Maybe the "wrong" route is actually faster, maybe it isn't and Waze needs more data, maybe some Wazer drove the "wrong" road several times 20mph over the speed limit and fed Waze bad data making Waze think it's faster, maybe some other Wazer rode his bicycle down the "right" way at 5mph and fed Waze bad data making Waze think it's slower. There is also the possibility there are errors on the map that need to be fixed.
Waze also "learns" if roads are two-way or one-way, which turns are allowed after a basemap import by "seeing" which ways drivers go on roads & which turns they use (and don't use).
