All 3 are roundabouts, none of them a mini-roundabouts.

The point of a mini-roundabout is that they can be driven over, hence
whilst cars are supposed to go around them and many are 'speed-hump
raised' to encourage this behaviour. Trucks can pass over them as many
are in places where a truck cannot get around otherwise.

The first 2 should be mini-roundabouts, as a truck is likely to have
serious issues with them. I cannot imagine that tree will last too long.

This is a mini-roundabout, which you can see is raised slightly
Actually its part of the magic roundabout, which is a roundabout you can
go around in either direction, and at each intersection there is a
mini-roundabout. On osm its here, http://osm.org/go/eumbs5ZIw--
