So half of the highways in African countries are tracks?

IIRC osm does tag highway class by usage not by construction or
physical attributes.

So there is a perfect possibility that large stretches of primary roads
in Madagascar should carry a surface=dirt - So yes - highway=primary
surface=dirt is a pretty likely combination.
