"On that screenshot with Sulu climbing up and the sign about "Environment Engineering Personnel only", how do you know that it doesn't mean that the ladder goes up to a room that contains the machinery/controls (like EMM) and it doesn't have anything to do with the trusses?"
I think that the controls for artificial gravity should be close to where it's generated, hence a ladder because otherwise a locked wall panel (like the atmosphere control panels) would make more practical sense. And these strange surface textures also appear in the turbo lift cars where gravity is an issue, therefore and according to Matt Jefferies' "identification by association" credo I believe these to be associated with AG and the trusses.
