Web of Science - Open Access Flags - Journal or Article Attribute?

ASAIK this is done at the journal level by matching with the DOAJ directory. So freely available articles in hybrid journals are not flagged. Do publishers provide any indication in the articles' records that would make it possible for indexing services (such als WoS, Scopus but also Worldcat and others) to know which records are OA and which not?

Recently Web of Science pushed out a new release which includes an open access flag. This allows a user to segment a result set by whether the records are open access or not.

I’m interested to know if this is an article level assignment, and would identify OA articles in a hybrid journal, or indeed Green OA, or whether it is a merely a journal attribute? Where is this information being sourced from?

The Open Access journal list here is a little patchy:

There are five PLOS journals, but no PLOS ONE. How can new additions to this list be suggested?
