Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I'm working on a commercial project and need to use OSM data without its buildings features. I thus plan on using osmfilter to filter out the buildings. I intend to render the rest of the data, except with a different (personally/privately collected) buildings layer rendered as separate layer.

Does this constitute a derivative database? Am I required to release the proprietary, collected-from-scratch building features if I don't merge it with the OSM data stripped of its building features?

You shouldn't be asking for legal advice here and you won't receive it either, that is what lawyers are for.

The OSMF (the licensor) guidelines on such and other questions can be found here: Community Guidelines.
