Looks to me like there is a separate tag, see:

On the other hand, there is another section that says it should be counted as a lane:

There appears to be support for the "turn lanes" tagging in at least one renderer that I am aware of and in JOSM:

Given that mis-mash of tagging descriptions, I have avoided tagging center turn lanes. However I think I'd probably tag your example as:

lanes=5, lanes:forward=2, lanes:backward=2, lanes:both_ways=1, centre_turn_lane=yes

Which, I think, covers the different ways I see in the wiki. Looks like everyone else is confused too as there are only a small number of roads tagged either way even though that is a fairly common road geometry.
