The exact definition of highway=service is a little murky, but I think
of it as a way intended to serve a particular feature (or set of them)
as opposed to a way that is part of the general public road network
(which would be residential and up.)

This looks like highway=service to me, as does that circle and the
adjacent segment of Wharton Drive.
