How to choose access tags for gates?

I usually add barrier=* near the intersection of a path and a highway as per the wiki, and add the corresponding access=private/customers/destination tag to the corresponding highways.
I have only used so far access=no on highways that are blocked or are in strongly restricted areas (e.g. military)

I usually don’t add the access=* tag to the barrier node, but I came across an example of a large government estate that has multiple gate access, where there is a main entrance open at specific hours but other gates seem to be closed permanently (or rarely open).

Should I always add access tags to barriers and which one in this specific example?
