Other nearby streets that were closer to the village node got tagged as street/village and were found successfully in the search.  I suspect the same would be true in other situations - a street closer to a subordinate place node will not be found.
It's a known problem of current street-place assignation. Work is being 
done in the locator branch to improve it.
