Are you sure? Reichenberger Straße appears to be mapped incorrectly as 
it joins directly into Kottbusser Tor & the pedestrian crossing is 
nearer Kottbusser Tor (note the crossing & path are to the West of the 
steps up to the railway station.

The lights at that crossing also appear to control vehicle access onto 
Kottbusser Tor.

Caveat: I'm using streetview so the images could be out of date.

If the lights were removed (or temporarily failed) drivers wouldn't 
think they have right access on entering the Tor or suddenly start 
driving clockwise around it. They'd treat it like a roundabout because 
it is a roundabout.

But from what I understand you want a tag saying it's not a roundabout 
so you can route it as if it was a roundabout.
