TIGER seems to label everything that isn't primary/secondary/tertiary as "residential", but per the wiki, residential is supposed to only be used for roads that are, well *residential*, i.e. are leading to or fronted by *residences*.
And in case of long sections without
residences (between villages etc) it is
also not highway=residential

Even then, some roads may be named
but still do not qualify for residential

It depends on location, in Poland name
may be assigned to not yet existing

 As result, in initial stages something
used solely as a driveway to a single
house will be already named with
it's own street name.

Name may be still assigned to something
that is nowadays not a full road,
but for example footway in a park
or a service road.
