IMHO they qualify for the service=alley tag when they are very narrow (or
slightly wider and leading nowhere/to backsides of properties, like your
2nd example), from your examples, they could be all seen as service. It has
not to do with door bell, mailbox and housenumber (these could all exist
even without any road, not an argument for highway=residential IMHO).
