Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

How to tag a highway that goes through a building? Examples: driveway into an inner court of a building complex, toll stations. Using layer or tunnel tagging, Mapnik does it the way I want, Osmarender does not. Is it a rendering problem with Osma or is there a tagging scheme that works?

Thanks, K.

And, yes, I searched through the forum, sorry, if this already came up earlier.

The renderers choose which order to display things in, and this might not match what's on the ground. You should tag accurately what's on the ground, and accept that it will show differently on different map layers, and might not show the way that you want it to.
