It's not clear if the part of the road inside the tunnel is named at all (perhaps not, as it might not serve any practical purpose).

I see no problem with adding tunnel:name=* in addition to name=*.
However, name=* should always contain the primary name of a feature. For a road tunnel, the primary name is typically the tunnel's name, as the tunnel is usually a more prominent feature than the road is.
Therefore the tag name=Schlossbergtunnel shouldn't be removed.
