I probably would tend to use 'service' for both (based on function) and use
'track' for something unsurfaced (tracktype=) but wide enough for a
4-wheeled vehicle and then use access= to describe privacy or otherwise ...
But each to his own!

Yes, I sometimes use service and sometimes track. In general if it's a
dead-end path to a set of garages I call it a 'track', while a
well-maintained road that just happens to be private is 'service'.
