I agree with your assessment.

In my opinion, road classifications are most useful when applied over
significant stretches of road.  I don't think a rural freeway that has
someone's driveway on it needs to be dropped from motorway to trunk around
that driveway, and I don't think a divided expressway with mostly at-grade
intersections but a few interchanges should be upgraded from trunk to
motorway around the interchanges.
