Are you making your roads out of boulders/logs or are you using blocks?

Testing in 40.08 roads made of
Wood Blocks
Stone Blocks
Metal Blocks
Glass Blocks
Do not add to architectural wealth.

If nothing else metal blocks shouldn't be worse for roads then metal bars.

Tested in v0.44.09:

No paved roads added to "Architecture" wealth (including copper bars)

"Refined" materials built as roads added to "Displayed" wealth (stone blocks, wood blocks, copper blocks, and charcoal); "unrefined" materials did not (stone boulders, wood logs, copper bars)

I then tested a copper-bar-road in v0.40.06 and it did not add any "architecture" wealth either

Note that "architecture" wealth is increased by non-architect buildings (e.g. mason's workshop), so it is not strictly a "things-built-by-architects" category. On the other hand, bridges are rather similar to paved roads and they *do* add to "architecture" wealth.
