Yes, and it shouldn't be a goal to inherit access tags from surrounding areas. Even if mappers would consistently set layer=* on the way with the access tags, the one encircling that area, so that it would match the roads' layers, it's far too easy to have a bridge or anything inside that should, or shouldn't inherit the tags. Likely not on the proving grounds, but elsewhere.
