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.

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.

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

It's not a run-of-the-mill exit, it's the end of an interstate. The split is a decision point. 696 ends and you have to decide whether to go east or west on 96, the parent interstate.

It's standard practice to name one side of such a split "exit", and not the other. Regardless, neither side has more weight than the other.
