For initial/final segment? no so important, though I have seen cases where
router took nearest public way (footway) instead of highway=residential
and driveway mapping helped it to produce reasonable routing.

But sometimes entering footway, pushing small section
and leaving footway via driveway is useful in the middle

Or leaving cycleway via driveway.
See 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=-31.99292&mlon=115.91624#map=19/-31.99292/115.91624

Without mapping public driveways routing would direct cyclists all the way
to 
https://www.openstreetmap.org/?mlat=-31.99326&mlon=115.92041#map=18/-31.99326/115.92041
- possibly ignoring this route and proposing an inferior alternative.
