I consider the fact that a road has a name as a "hint" that it might not be
a track, but it shouldn't provide a definitive answer. There are named
tracks around here (Colorado, US), especially if they are popular with 4x4
folks, ATV'ers, mountain bikers, etc.  The real test is whether it leads to
facilities that are occupied by humans on a more or less full time on-going
basis.  Full time residences (or occupied a significant part of the year)
=residential, on going business where employees, customers, etc. visit
daily =service.
