What is the bug in OSM data? That the ref=* should be attached to the 
boundary=administrative instead of the place=town?

I guess I should try with precompiled bounds.

The 3-digit refs are the official reference codes for municipalities.  I 
I guess that the ref could be longer, consisting of proper NUTS and LAU 
prefixes. For example, the ref=10 for Tykkimäki (a part of Kouvola) 
could be some kind of a suburb or village code.

Best regards,
