In hindsight, perhaps it was remiss of me to presume that the absence of an access tag would be interpreted as access=yes. I don't think I have added access=yes unless I thought there was any doubt. I have added locked=yes where public roads become private but I don't think I have ever added locked=no. In future, I will add access=* and locked=* to any gates.

Though, being lazy or probably just not thinking about it, I usually tag the roads with access=private and be done rather than add it to the gate as well. I don't know if renders would pay any attention to these tags either? The road access tag is displayed on some renders. 
Not aware about renderers but routers are likely to tag access tagging on gates
into consideration
