If 696 ends at the exit, then the left segment should be a ramp all the way to the end.

Then I'd use a ramp stub on the left for the instruction and keep the freeway for the last few hundred yards for the sake of traffic reports, etc.

Having the split be with two highway segments and then have it switch back to an exit segment for the right side would fix this issue, wouldn't it?

But the exit is an exit. It follows the rules and guidelines of an exit.

It's really not that simple. It's not "just an exit" if the exit has the same number of lanes as the continuation. That's a textbook (or, wiki) example of when it is proper to use a wayfinder segment.

You mean like this?

Yes. I would absolutely use a wayfinder there. Especially because the continuation is on the right.

The exit ramp for I-30 is sufficient enough.
