It definitely should not be trunk_link.

The advice at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Frontage_road is that it
should be tagged as a minor road as compared to the major road. The tagging
level should depend on its function in local connectivity i.e. how
important it is in connecting local settlements. I think most of them could
reasonably be tagged as tertiary or secondary roads.
