Yes, however the reasoning for this is that sometimes someone has drawn every single driveway on a street in a city/town. 
Rendering this at low zoom levels would clutter the map. By contrast, tracks are often much more sparsely populated, so they don't clutter the map.

I don't know what the solution to this would be, however.

> A common situation is that a service road/driveway continues as a track beyond the initial residential destination. This is common on farms.
> On the standard map at zoom level 15, driveways are not shown. But tracks and footpaths are. This seems counter-intuitive in that driveways are usually wider and more substantially surfaced than farm tracks.
> The result is that a track, and sometimes a footpath, appears to start in the middle of nowhere.
