Not sure is it happening in UK but Poland has some private driveways that
are officially assigned status of major road ("droga krajowa").

There is also officially existing major road route, crossing river by bridge that
was destroyed in WW II and not rebuild. As result there is highway=track
that is officially a major road.

Japan has steps that have assigned rank of major road (for some historic reasons).

In some cases deviating from official designations makes sense (
not sure is it actually happening here).
