maybe it is even mistagged? Looking at taginfo I see 64 highway=toll_bridge. According to the longstanding definition for barrier=toll_booth it is „A place where a road usage toll or fee is collected.“

Now „collected“ is not actually true for systems that wirelessly check whether you have paid or not (a subscription), it is only intended for places where you actually pay (or spend your prepaid, even wirelessly). 

the barrier key somehow implies either you pay or you don’t pass

and maybe no booth either? To me highway=toll_bridge seems a good tag, as it is self explanatory and combinable with barrier tags.
