Like, if we are talking only about the phone number, no. Because knowing only the number, it is impossible to uniquely identify a person. If a number is stored some information, full name, passport data, Yes - violation.
P. S. but it's not exactly =)

The question is impossible to give a completely definite answer, but I thought this article on the topic:
And and here for example Github? A major service and why would he be under the sword of Damocles? Can you add Facebook and other big sites? Nonsense...

what if the phone is PII
No. Only the phone number do not uniquely identify the person. But a set of "phone-name" or "phone-name-soap" (which is a common practice for many services) - it will be PD.

Purely interested, and if a person voluntarily puts their data. For example filling your profile on github or SO

IF true - then Yes, you understand correctly.
BUT the fact that he is not. There are different positions in different specialists, of course. But we now believe that having only knowledge of the phone number an ordinary person could not identify anyone. Under contract with the Opsosom room actually belongs to him (though I do not know the details of this point in connection with the transition to another operator).
Now for the second part of the question. All discrepancies arise from attempts to make a milkshake with warm and soft at the state level. The state considers its citizens as a liability and stubbornly believes that information about this liability actually belongs to the state (please do not go into details of the terms then and then. Of course, PD are owned by the Person and nobody denies it. The question is, what shield is designed to protect is used as a barrier). Hence, there are incidents when a person (Person, the owner of the PDN) allegedly loses the right to dispose of his own data, to delegate operations to someone that is not included in the Registry.
