So all of the turns were restricted and someone Q'ed all of them using JNF? Otherwise, I'm not picturing what you're saying here.
Yes, JNF should only be used once all streets and nodes and turn restrictions are complete.
correct, basemap with soft-restricted turns and someone just got rid of soft-turns by using JNF.

Wrong. Basically if there soft-turn (doesn't matter if soft-allowed or soft-restricted) exists on the junction it will remain soft until someone set it manually to hard. You may edit everything else on the segment (like geometry, city/street names, etc.), but this will not affect existing soft-turns at all.
Soft-turns are not matter of basemap only. New soft-turns are easy to create. just draw new segment and create roundabout crossing that segment. then you see soft-enabled turns in new junctions. you may edit any segments, soft-turn will remain until manually WQed (or JNF used).
In previous versions of WME it was possible to create soft-turns by creating junction on two crossing segments via the "create junction) icon which appears if you select both segments. And historically soft-turns were being created also in other cases.
So even there were never basemap in our country we have tons of soft-turns and we are trying to get rid of them. so we may QW junction with soft-turns, but need to check before, if there were any turns restricted, or use JNF, which will preserve current restrictions and get rid of soft-turns.
