I've seen where a misplaced additional junction point on a primary road caused Waze to route around back streets to avoid it (reducing the total number of junction points traversed).
In theory toll roads, freeways and motorways should have less junction points than standard streets (especially over a distance), thereby giving them quite a precedence when being chosen.
When they first started waze, we were told that a junction adds a 5 second penalty.
The last we saw, was that junction where there were no options don't have a penalty.
Again, this is black box and what they leak. And sometimes I think they misspeak themselves. So take the above with a grain of salt.
