That's what I thought, but why can't you generate both a boundary line 
and a landuse polygon for these areas? In the past it used to be that 
only one of the "polygons" and "lines" files would match, but I think 
someone mentioned that the restriction was lifted in the style branch.

I will test the landuse=residential tomorrow and correct it if needed.
For what it is worth, resources/garmin_feature_list.csv documents 0x02 
as "City2" and it does not document 0x10 at all. Some time ago, I did 
test 0x04 on my Edge 705, and it was displayed different from the 
default yellow.
