    No, not beyond the  "auto classify" options. I've looked into this for auto-classification of roading and landslip features and in a nutshell it gets really involved really quickly. There are GEOBIA approaches and AI approaches. For us on our road network, we ended up going with neither, adopting a manual approach was way quicker and easier to validate, turns out that humans are really good at pattern recognition.
