No statement in the Wiki backs up this claim. This is what i say.

No statement about through traffic. Residentials are for through
traffic aswell although their primary purpose may be access to the
residential area.

This is what our algorithmic brothers in routing/navigation do. Treating
unclassified and residential the same.

And we cant distinguish these 2 by hard facts. Its more or less "felt
traffic pattern" or "believe" or "experience" how you tag.
