I would say that if it's currently working for you and you're losing weight like you'd expect, you could continue logging the workouts like you have been. If you're feeling hungry, low on energy or your weight loss is stalling, then maybe consider logging it as circuit training and see how that impacts your recommended calorie range and your progress.

How long are these workouts and how often are you doing them?

I working with new strength workouts that are cross-fit style. Lifting and body weight exercises done in fairly quick sessions. (I say cross-fit style, but I am far from doing a true cross-fit workout). So I know the my heart rate is higher than when I did more traditional lifting but I'm still logging it as strength ____ minutes.

I'm not in the habit of eating back my calories, so am I doing myself any harm in not trying to get a truer idea of calories burned during the specific workout session?
