However, a given administrative area may well contain country-level, state-level, and county roads.  If a given road is tagged with only a number, what indicates which one of these is meant?  Also, it is not unusual for a stretch of physical roadway to be considered part of both a country-level road and a state-level road, etc.

You can use admin boundaries to derive country, state, and county information.
