Well, what you could probably guess correctly, is that every settlement will be reachable through at least one road and not just tracks. If a road is the only connection between 2 settlements, it is probably a road.
I would review aerial and changesets changing that and changeset comments and quality
of work of paid mapper and whatever original mapping was done by someone more trustworthy.

For example if "unclassified=>track" would be described as
"changing unpaved roads to highway=track" and original would be "marking sole road to XYZ"
then revert would be obviously justified.

(real case would be likely murkier)
