I'd expect that that would be it.  With mkgmap you can make pretty much 
anything appear as anything - in order to show them you've got to pick 
something to map them to, and I guess that's what he's picked.  There's 
no "official" Garmin OSM map, just a number of widely used ones.  If you 
want them to appear as something else pick another download or create 
your own.

For my own mkgmap maps I do instead:

barrier=gate [0x2f0f resolution 23 default_name 'Gate']
barrier=stile [0x2f14 resolution 23 default_name 'Stile']

and if you create your own maps, you can pick whatever you want.  There 
are various bits of help for how to do that - for example here:

and if you search for "mkgmap" in help.osm.org you'll also get answers
