As there seem to be fewer than 10 such problematic multipolygons in Finland,
I think that it will be easier to split the problematic multipolygons by
hand.  For instance, the Japanese garden
does not need to be a multipolygon at all.

I split the building multipolygon to a multipolygon and a separate polygon
at the NE edge.  According to municipal aerial imagery and data on property
boundaries, the building mass consists of several separate buildings, so my
resolution of the problem should better reflect the reality.
