My point about "real road" vs "paved place you can drive that isn't a real road" is not really about access=yes/private, which is a separate issue. But, my point may be more local than I think it is. And to answer "how do you tell"? Well, you have to look at a lot of things, sometimes including town property data, and various clues, and make your best guess, and fix it later if you realize you are wrong. A big clue is a street sign put up by the same authority that puts up regular road signs. I certainly do not change keys at property boundaries for driveways off public roads. I use highway=service service=driveway for the entire length of the way, even the end part that is within the government-owned road parcel.
