It's sedimentary rock so therefore it was certainly at some time a soft sediment.
Can't argue with that, lol.

Yes, for tracks made in soft sediment to be preserved, just like Dino tracks, it's necessary for the layer to be covered over and eventually eroded away revealing the exposed fossils.
That's how fossilisation works.
Indeed it is.
I sort of get the idea I'm being patronized here, haha. Was it something I said?

The Turkish tracks when viewed from the air are on an area of exposed sedimentary rock which is surrounded by layers and topsoil. The tracks continue on under these layers.
In Malta and Turkey among others, we may be just seeing localised areas where nature has fortuitously revealed the tracks for us to observe today.

The precise geological mechanism by which this occurred is a matter for debate.
Absolutely. I was offering my opinion on how it might have happened. The distinct lack of layering in the limestone in which the tracks are laid is a tell-tale sign of catastrophic deposition.
