Ah. You think the OP is talking about *real-world* objects and how to
tag them. I was thinking they are talking about bugs in the map ;).

(I don't tend to classify real-world objects as node-type when talking
about them ;).)

In that case, I believe the layer=* tag should be used instead, giving
the object the same layer as the tunnel or bridge.
