I dont think the legal/physical nature of the restriction shouuld influence your tagging (unless you want to use the :physical tag suffix and distinguish the two).

When in doubt, err on the side of caution and tag the most restrictive value. Use the smallest limit for the maxweight tag and add tags like maxweight:hgv for the vehicle-specific limits. See the access tag on the wiki for examples.
