This option:

is the one that attempts to locate the city that a POI belongs to.
But it is not magic it just tries to find a nearby city.
It depends on the data how successful it is.

In my case I got different results as the .osm file was smaller and
did not the string 'Ebersberg'.

So you really need to track down, from the data, where the strings are
coming from.  The problem could be solely in the data, but if the bug
is in mkgmap, then we need to know what the actual data was so that we
can see what is going wrong.
