The tags of node 2129650976 are:


I think that this is an error of mkgmap instead of an error in the 
source data. The place=* ref is not something that you would normally 
see anywhere; therefore it should not be included in the mkgmap 
translated label.

I do not see an error in the source data, other than the ref of the 
suburb not being fully qualified (it should start with NUTS and LAU 
references that qualify the city of Tampere).

BTW, the place=city of Tampere (node 30969480) is lacking ref. It is in 
role admin_centre of two boundaries (admin_level 8 for the city and 6 
for the province of Pirkanmaa). The latter relation does have ref=FI197, 
but there is no ref for the city relation.
