While Wikipedia is sometimes wrong, it does tend to have useful information.
Publishing or propagating the image does not normally require consent:
If the person is an irrelevant or merely accidental part (Beiwerk) of a
landscape or locality shown in the picture.
If the person took part in a public meeting or event and is depicted on this
If distribution or exhibition serves a higher artistic interest.
So - not misled.

You're completely misled.
In Germany (and probably all over Europe) that part of note well
will not apply to the rights about your own picture/portrait.
To obtain such a right, a seperate explicit and voluntary consent
is required. That is a privilege guaranteed by law.
