I had no idea that it said that.
What I do is
* highway=service service=parking_aisle
ways that are basically only to get to parking spaces
* highway=service service=driveway
ways connecting to the real roads and sort of going near where you
are trying to go when you want to park in the parking lot (carpark),
just enough to be connected, and trying to pick the places that are
more important/through roads
The latter is more or less what your service=parking_access is trying to
do. But if for example you want to pick someone up at the front door
of a supermarket, and not park, you'd use them. So parking_access
really isn't quite right for most of these ways.
